PAS: How long have you been a photographer?
BC: I've been doing photography for about 8 years now.

PAS: What equipment and software do you use?
BC: I have a lot of Canon gear, studio equipment, car rigs... Software-wise, I just use photoshop. Currently on CS5.

PAS: Where is your favorite location to shoot pictures?
BC: I always love shooting on location somewhere but it can be a hassle at times. I do like shooting in studio also depending on the assignment.

PAS: Are you a Mac or PC user?

PAS: What has been your most memorable assignment?
BC: Well, one of my favorite shoots was with Naoko's Acura RSX. I loved the graphics on the car and the location we shot at was just a great match.

PAS: What would you say to other enthusiast photographers out there who aspire to become a great photographer?
BC: Photography is a passion; an art... Don't get into it because you think it's the cool thing to do! Don't be another trend. Also, do your research on equipment and how to use it rather than relying on photoshop to edit your photos.
