About Me

I became a photographer for 3 reasons, and none of them were in order to make a lot of money.

  1. I've always been fascinated with light
  2. My father had been enjoying photography since he was young. He introduced me to photography by using several different types of cameras and purchased a darkroom kit for me.
  3. I came across a book on Ansel Adams and his photography of the natural world and I was hooked.

That's my photo. I tried to avoid adding the recommended "About Me" page. But I've been told I should have one. After all, the purpose of this web site is to help you, not me.  

Canon Geek About Me Photo

I've been a professional photographer for over 30 years. I've been taking photos since 1969.

I've attained the Gold Level of Canon Professional Services membership. It's because of all of the Canon camera equipment I've purchased over the years.

I graduated with honors with a B.S. in Professional Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology. I'm not a very creative writer but I still try to get the information across without being too boring. I am serious about taking great photos, but I try to keep it light with a little humor too.

What's in my Camera Bag?

Canon Rebel DSLR Camera Bag

I just sold a few of my Canon camera bodies before posting this page. All my gear doesn't fit in once camera bag, not even close. This is what I own at the time of this update.  

I am down to having just 4 Canon cameras. I feel like a minimalist, but that will change. I have a 5D Mark IIIEOS 70DG1x Mark II, Canon EOS 20D. I also own a few lenses:  Canon 400mm f/5.6  Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 , two 24-105 f/4.0 lenses, 85mm f/1.8, Canon EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6, Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-f/4. 

I also have a lot of gadgets, gizmos, accessories, and thingamajigs, like tripods, monopods, flash guns, studio flash, extension tubes, clamps, reflectors, and more.

You likely came here because you are a photographer who has an interest in Canon cameras, lenses, accessories and alternative choices for equipment purchases. My name is Bruce Lovelace and I am a Canon Camera Geek. I don't attend the weekly meetings at the CCGA (Canon Camera Geek Anonymous) support group.

I do like to help people with choosing the best camera gear for their situation. I am not a technical tester of equipment. I like to read a lot of the technical test results and consumer reviews. I "play" a lot with equipment and then pass on the practical information to my readers.

I added "affiliate" links to this site to help pay for it.  If you click one of the links and end up purchasing something, I get a little financial "thank you" from one of those merchants. Right now they include ThinkTank Photo, Ebay, Amazon, and Adorama.

Thanks for your support!

About Me Facts - Unrelated to Canon Camera Geek

Schooner Head Mount Desert Island - Canon 5D Mark III

The photo destination I've traveled to the most is Acadia National Park.

There's something special about the way the rocks, the oceans, the lakes, and the small mountains come together in one place that make it magical to me-and a great place to shoot landscape photography.

Woot! woot! The EAGLES won the 2018 Super Bowl Champions.

I had wanted to celebrate at least 1 Philadelphia EAGLES Super Bowl victory before I died. Made that goal, and am still celebrating it this year.

I am now optimistic that they could win another one in the not too distant future.

Starship Enterprise

I have 3 older sisters, who all became teachers, so it was only natural for me to start teaching photography.

My favorite TV shows growing up were Star Trek, Mighty Mouse, Daniel Boone, and the Wild Wild West.

That's quite an eclectic mix, but if you think about it, they were all quite visual.

I have a great marriage and 3 amazing adult children.I also am a nature geek. I take photo excursions out in the wild to test equipment. I have a lot of Accessories for my Canon DSLR Cameras. I teach adult photography classes and also run free workshops for pre-teens that use the tool of photography to help the kids improve their self esteem and confidence.

That's enough about me.

Keep shooting. Keep learning. Keep improving.
