Honored to be a part of the Apple keynote launching the new Mac Pro yesterday: it's one of the proudest moments of my career to be one of three people in the world to get to test drive and give honest feedback on the new Mac Pro (which is awesome!)

So many have helped me along the way and I appreciate each and every one of you. #MacPro #DSLR #photography
