Shawn Rody

"My name is Shawn Rody and I'm a 23 year old freelance broadcast associate working for CBS in New York. When I'm not working in NYC I live in Southern New Jersey, where I take most of my pictures. I'd rather be playing bass in a band but that doesn't seem to pay very well! I got interested in taking pictures with a Brownie when I saw a little news piece on TV about people that use them. I saw the Brownie Camera Page that night, and then did a little investigating. Since they are plentiful, and film is available for many models, I decided I'd go on ebay to find one. I found my No 2 Folding Autographic Brownie for about 20 bucks, I think it's from about 1922. It came with the instruction book and box, very cool. I never realized that such an old camera could take such great pictures!" Shawn Rody
