My favorite subjects are nature, animals, coastal shots, sunsets, botanical subjects, and Yosemite National Park.
My equipment currently includes a Canon 6D, a Canon 7D Mark II, a Canon 7D, and twelve lenses. I have a Canon 50mm F1.8 lens, a 17mm-40mm (L Series), an 18mm-55mm, a 24mm-105mm (L Series), a 28mm-135mm, a 55mm-250mm, a 75mm-300mm, and a 100mm-400mm (L Series). In addition, I have four Sigma lenses including a 10mm-20mm F3.5, a 50mm F2.8 (1:1) macro lens, and a 150mm-500mm, and a 150mm-600mm (Sports Model). I also have a 1.4x converter, a large selection of lens filters, a set of extension tubes, and diopters. In addition, I have four external flash units with wireless trigger capability. I have several light reflectors; intervalometers, remote shutter releases, and five continuous LED light panels. I also have over ten studio lights with numerous muslin studio backgrounds, including a “green screen” background. I also have specialized Chroma key software, and over a thousand digital backgrounds for Chroma key use. I use Manfrotto tripods (4) and monopod (1) equipment.
Zoos or other animal venues. Scenic locations that offer landscape photography or historic buildings, or iconic architecture. The California coast, Gold Rush country, or Yosemite National Park.
Nature, animals, landscapes, and other subjects taken with natural light. I enjoy a close-up perspective on many subjects.
Experienced, but learning how to do things better all the time.
