Growing up in Florida, Dale has always been fascinated with different animals—elk, moose, bears, bighorn sheep—hoping and fantasizing for one day to just have these critters up close and personal, on their terms, in their domain. After a little over 10 years in the military, he felt the need to move out West, to fully enjoy these wild places. This is when Dale first picked up a camera. Early on, he looked at it as a way to share this beauty with friends and family back on the East Coast that weren’t able to experience it firsthand. Seeing it from a different perspective than most that are born and raised here, it’s as he’s a kid, and this is his candy store.
"Anytime I head out, you can bet that OP/TECH USA products are always protecting all of my equipment."
"OP/TECH USA products are so versatile, that regardless if I’m hiking miles into the backcountry to find a bugling bull elk, or working in a studio environment, the Utility Sling has my camera safe and secure. The way it can handle a pro series camera, with large telephoto lenses attached is a dream—helping to distribute the weight and cumbersome size of the gear I run. Plus the Hood Hat and Snoot Boot keep all my lenses clean and at the ready for quick interchangeability during fast-paced work. Anytime I head out, you can bet that OP/TECH USA products are always protecting all of my equipment."
