Dave Pardue Managing Editor
I fell for photography in 1981 and have been in love with it ever since. I had a big passion for working in the darkroom back in the day, even had a little one in my high school bathroom, and remember spending long nights processing images to my heart's content (lots of burning and dodging!). My first 35mm camera was a little Olympus Pen, and I later got a Nikon SLR rig, both of which served me well for many years.
In 2012, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the headquarters of IR where I began working part-time doing layout work for them. Within a few months I began doing camera reviews as well, cutting my review teeth on the neat little Sony HX30V and the imminently cool Fujifilm XF1.
In late 2013 I became the Managing Editor for IR, which keeps me fairly busy most of the time but still allows enough time left over for shooting and reviewing cameras. Below are some of the reviews and articles I've done for IR over the past few years. Feel free to email me with any questions about the cameras I've reviewed or the photos captured with them (or anything photography-related for that matter!) and thanks for being a part of the IR community.
