Kurt Longnecker, Plainfield IL Member Since September 2011 Artist Statement I currently live and work in the greater Chicagoland area. By day, I am a software developer for a leading global distributor of exchange and financial data. I am also a co-owner of a outdoor survival equipment company named Cardinal Gear Inc. (www.CardinalGear.com). Cardinal Gear Inc. provides survival gear to branches of the U.S. armed forces, local governments and schools and to outdoor enthusiasts.
Photography gives me an opportunity to relax, get outdoors and to experiment with light and to be creative. It's a great joy.
