About me:

I've been shooting digital photography since the beginning, starting with the Canon RC-250 in 1990 and advancing to the Chinon in 1992, then to the Ricoh RDC-1 in 1993. Since then, I have had a succession of more conventional digitial cameras including models from Nikon, Minolta, Ricoh, and Casio. In 2002 I used Nikon D100 and Minolta D7i.
Prior to 1990 I was a film photogrpapher, starting with 5x7 and 4x5 view cameras in the late 1940s, adapting to 35mm in the 50s (Konica, Leica CL), and experimenting with 120/220mm format using Rollei TLR, Mamiya 120, and Mamiya 645 systems. I used to do all my own wet chemistry using Omega D2 and a color darkroom. But in recent years I converted to Epson Inkjet printing using various scanners and now digital cameras. I have semi-professional experience at weddings, schools, and news phtography. Since 2007 I have been concentrating on large landscape prints using Hasselblad H1 and P30 back, and recently moved up to Sony Alpha a900.
