What camera(s) and equipment (i.e. lenses) do you use?

I have the original Canon Rebel w/70-300 zoom w/macro and a 28-80 zoom w/macro, Canon speedlight 420ex. My latest baby is a Nikon D5100 with 18-55 and 55-300. I do not have a dedicated Nikon flash yet, however I have several manual flashes and wireless triggers, currently I can fire up to 3 flashes wirelessly in manual mode. I also have a Minolta Maxxum 5000 film camera with several lenses which I never use anymore. Update 2015: I now mostly just shoot Sony, I bought an a6000 last year and fell in love with it and just recently picked up an a7ii full frame. As far as Sony lenses go I have a 16-50 an[masked] and a 28-70, my old Tamron[masked] also works with the LEA-4 Sony adapter. I use the Phottix flashes and triggers with the Sony's. Last year I also picked up a Paul C. Buff Einstein studio strobe and it's Awesome.

What photo manipulation program(s) do you use? (i.e. Adobe Lightroom; Photoshop CS5 for PC or Mac)

Adobe Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5 and my newest favorite Phase One Capture One 8 pro (this one blows lightroom out of the water as far as image quality is concerned).

Is photography a hobby or profession?

Hobby, but would like to turn it into a cash generating hobby.

What types of photography do you enjoy (i.e. nature; artistic; portraits; landscapes; macro; etc...)

I like it all as long as the subject is interesting and pleasing to my eyes.

Do you have a favorite place/event that you like taking pictures of? If yes, feel free to explain.

I used to enjoy taking pictures of the Dallas skyline, however now days they have no trespassing signs everywhere along the trinity river bottom and the only legal shooting position is a bad angle and has the new jail right smack in the middle blocking the view.

Introduction

Single father 48 years young. My son is 15. I have been an off and on fairly advanced amateur photographer since my teen years. My father has always been into photography and it naturally rubbed off on me.
