What's behind the nickname?

Many people ask me what's behind my nickname - 36Clicks.

There are three answers, actually. A couple of years ago, I decided to start my own company at the age of 36. Didn't keep that promise to myself, as I gave myself a year's head start.

The second reason resides on nostalgia; after 36 Clicks, the spool of film is full. Of course, this doesn't apply to Digital or Medium format cameras, let alone to the old 24 exposure 35mm film, but still - I like it.

Last, as a company, the name 36Clicks will in most case be on top of any listing, registry or company guide..:)

Most important, though, I like the sound of it, the domain 36clicks was still available, and no-one uses it, at least not to my knowledge ...

Now, let me ask you: What's the story behind your nickname?

I picked two words related to the profession ‘Graphics’ and ‘Photos’. Just mix-up them with little slicing and replacing; Graphics + Photos : graph + pho o : graf + foo : Grafoo.

Mine is from one of my favorite books, "Stargirl" by Jerry Spinelli. Since Stargirl tends to be taken everywhere, I stick an A in front.

Very idealistic one, like it simple and easy to remember. For me is (mailthepic), after years in the commercial photographing where back in the old days internet, email are not convenience .Everything have to be send by human.... but now with all the super technology, everything make easy with the click of a button. So just Mail the picture or visual to me (mailthepic) and i will get the job done. The lucky part is i got my email address for it too, mailthepic@yahoo.com.

Hey, really fun question!

Mine, Gadgetat is actually a 2 parter, but you wouldn't know it. It's actually Gadget AT. In 01 I hiked the Appalachian Trail. I carried a ton of tech equipment with me to keep an online journal of the hike. So the other hikers started calling me Gadget. The AT part just stands for the Appalachian Trail. I'd love to go back and get some more photos!
