I've been carrying a camera around since December 1969. I've been to 48 states and a handful of countries. I love capturing scenery, sporting events, weddings, reunions, theatre, company parties, families, and friends and sharing my photos with them. I hope you enjoy my work!

My primary camera is a Nikon D300 model (12.3 megapixels). My lenses are 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/2.8, 17-50mm f/2.8, 12-24mm f/4, Fisheye 10.5mm f/2.8, 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6, 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6, and a Lensbaby 3G. My secondary camera is a Nikon D90 (also with 12.3 megapixels). My flashes are SB-900 & SB-800. I also capture video with a Sony HDR-SR10 High Definition Handycam Camcorder, and two Sony HDR-CX110 camcorders.
