ANNOUNCEMENT: Please Join us in Hanoi This Fall!

Our Fall 2022 X-Peditions travel photography workshops, based in Hanoi, Vietnam, have opened for enrollment.
There are currently 4 spots remaining between the two sessions. Full details at our Fall 2022 program page.

Where to Get Your Gear - And Why:

Midwest Photo is a mid-sized photo gear retailer located in Ohio.

They have demonstrated a strong desire to cater to the type of photographers who tend to read this site, and typically bend over backwards to keep the various pieces of small-flash lighting gear (and associated items) in stock. Given the challenges of dealing with the various suppliers, this is a more daunting task than you might think.

MPEX also ships internationally, which is very important for readers who do not have a good gear resource in their home country.

I have found them to be honest and ethical people to deal with. That is not a given in this day of faceless internet commerce.

You can reach them here.
