An older fellow from Alabama recently posted that he now uses a wheelchair bc of Parkinson's. He's unclear as to what help he needs(his answers to ?? are toooo short). Does anyone here know of general/national group that we can point him to??
T I A.
in relation to photography? or to accommodate his disability so he can be a photographer?
1. A good tripod to stabilize the camera. He might put a platform on the arms of the wheelchair so as to place the camera on and stabilize it. A small tripod with a ball adjustment would help. He would probably want to aim and focus on a screen on back of his camera as opposed to through a viewfinder.
2. He would benefit from a remote shutter release. They are not expensive.
3. Call either B an H camera or Adamrama. Both are in Manhattan and ask for ideas from their photo department.
if its a mobility related issue...Chris Reeve Foundation. They would consider this a type of paralysis. They may have resources related to photography or maybe know of a mentor.
--continued... Google: disability. photography. That might lead to websites. Also "New Mobility" magazine
Google: Independent living center or center for independent living. There may be a specialist on equipment.
Also r/Parkinson's reddit. People there build their own equipment and have ideas and suggestions.
Hi Thanks again.
Several ideas may be helpful. The real problem-to my way of thinking-is the lack of definition as to what his situation is.
There is a disabled photo0graphers assoc. in UK-- no mention of US branch-- that has probably solved this for a member. Also, I'll suggest contacting his state university. They also may have solved this issue for a student.
I'll post these ideas shortly and will follow-up as any infi becomes available.
