About Fred T aka fredyt3

known for Professionalism – Flexibility

The motivation for advancing my photography skills was based on the reality that many take photos, including those known as “professional” yet they would not deliver their final product in a timely manner, if at all so my guiding inspiration has always been “why do it tomorrow, when you can do it today!”


I started out with a basic camera.  During the 1984 Summer Olympics and since I was part of the LAOOC staff, I was given the opportunity to purchase a Canon AE1.  That became my first real camera and over the years as digital became the standard format I purchased a Canon Powershot, which was great for taking general personal shots.  In 2011 I got more serious and started shooting events and through the years realized I needed to step my game up and invest in more advanced equipment.

Currently these are the cameras and equipment I use:
