Kirk McElhearn has been writing about technology for more than 20 years. His first photo experiences were with film back in the 1980s, and he is interested in photography as an art as much as a craft. He is co-host of the PhotoActive podcast, as well as other podcasts about Apple products and software. His current camera of choice is a Leica Q2 Monochrom, with a Fujifilm X-E4 and XF 35mm f/2 lens for color photos.
