Anything I recommend will be listed here.

Fuji XT-1 – My goto camera (link to the newer model).
WordPress / Blog Recommendations
WordPress – This site is built with WordPress. I think it’s the best platform if you want control over what you create and want to be able to build on it in a customizable way.
Genesis Framework – This is the base code for my theme. Genesis is a little odd at first. It’s a WordPress theme, but then you install a “child theme” which styles it and adds custom settings. This means that the “Genesis Framework” itself adds all the HTML for your entire site, while the child theme can be used to tweak it.
Bulma.css – Great CSS framework. I’m using it with Sass to create this theme.
WP Rocket – I’ve spent a lot of time and effort making sites faster. As a developer for 20 years I know how much work is involved. While I could do it all myself, WP Rocket does a BETTER job for an incredibly low price. I’ve been complete amazed by how many features this one plugin has. I’ll use it on every WordPress site I make.
