A photo and lighting place! Here I'll post some stuff I've shot in the process of learning.

Mostly, I shoot with: Nikon D700 or my NEW Nikon D7000,

* Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 HSM-II (sports & portrait - SHARP!)
* Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 HSM (my fave),
* Nikkor 18-200 VR-II HSM (Not real sharp, but handy. A great street sweeper.), &
* My new
Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM (WIDE!).
* Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6 VR HSM (pretty cheap, disposable, pretty sharp out to 200mm and a loooooong reach with a crop frame),
* Nikkor 60mm micro (sharp enough to hurt the eyes).
* Sigma 105mm EX macro (UBER sharp!), &

Flash stuff:
* 4 Nikon SB800/900 (with ttl cords),
* 6 Nikon SB-25/26/28s (old, manual, reliable, nice),
* 6 ancient Sunpak 611 flashes (really old, manual, reliable, nice) with big SLA battery packs for studio, tabletop macro and portraits
. (GN=168 = lotsa light for a $50 flash).
* (6) Pocket Wizard and (6) Yongnuo RF-603 radio flash triggers

tons of stands, umbrellas, soft-boxes, mounts, hot & cold shoes, cords, pocket wizard radio triggers, reflectors, scrims, backdrops, adapters, snoots, grids, batteries , chargers, bags & cases, gewgaws, gimcracks, whatchamacallits, doohickeys, thingamajigs, whatnots, widgets, et cetera.

I love to shoot out on the street, but the technical aspects of photography/lighting are fascinating - and sometimes vexing. I am fortunate to shoot with motivated and inquisitive photographers.

I am available for portraits, senior photos & product photography.

Commercially printed copies (up to 24" x 30" of most photos seen here are available on high quality paper for framing.
