About me:

Various film bodies beginning in the 60's, including medium format, later a Minolta SRT 201; some misc. digital P&S cameras and eventually moved to Canon 10D; now shoot with a 1DMkIII, I replaced a S45 with a S100 for travel & casual shooting.

I use an iPhone X for more casual, quick stuff, I expect to add a mirrorless body to replace the 1DIII at some point.

Lenses are a key part of photography gear, what I currently shoot with:

EF 20mm f/2.8
EF 24mm f/1.4L
EF 17-40mm f/4.0L
EF 50mm f/1.4
EF 24-70mm f/2.8L
EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS
EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II
EF 300mm f/4.0L IS
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS
EF 800mm f/5.6L IS

Tripods, monopods, heads, a 4th Dimension Mongoose M3.6 gimbal, flashes, flash extender, plus the routine assortment of parts & pieces. I'm still looking for skill....

In spite of my limitations, many of my photos have been published. Even a blind squirrel gets lucky sometimes and finds a nut...

I'm the workshop manager for the Sarasota Audubon Society.

I also contribute to the SCORE Association serving on the executive committee as a co-chair, the IT & admin chair and as a certified mentor, helping business startups and existing businesses meet their goals.
