What type of camera do you shoot with?

I'm a Nikon shooter (F4, D2Xs, D3S) and have an assortment of Nikon glass. Also have a Canon Digital Elph "pocket" camera for more casual use or when I just don't want to schlep the heavier gear.

What is your favorite thing to photograph?

It used to be underwater wildlife and landscapes. But I've discovered I like shooting people so I'm focusing on portraits (beauty, fashion, family, high school seniors, kids, animals) for the moment. I also like cars, planes...pretty much anything.

How would you rate your level of photographic expertise (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Professional)?

I'll never stop learning and trying new techniques. I enjoy sharing knowledge with like minded people and trying new things I might not have done before. Unless I'm shooting for fun, I charge for my services, so I guess in that regard I'm a professional.


I'm passionate about photography, so hanging with fellow photgs seems right up my alley.
