I get a lot of questions about the equipment I use for my work. If you’re curious, this section is for you…
All the photos you see here were taken with one of my digital cameras – and I have had fun with several over the years. I am currently shooting with a Nikon D300, a state-of-the-art digital SLR camera that offers interchangeable lenses and a 12.3 megapixel CMOS DX photosensor. My two favorite DX lenses include a Nikkor G 18-200mm F3.5-5.6 VR lens with vibration reduction, and a Tokina 12-24 F4 AT-X Pro lens for ultra-wide angle shots.
Over the years, I have also shot with some other DSLRs – a Nikon D200, a Pentax *istDS, and a Sigma SD10. In the earlier years, I also used a couple of fixed-lens Sony digital cameras- an F707 and an F717. In fact my current camera arsenal still includes a Sony DSC-F828, which I use as a back-up camera, and which sports an 8.2 million pixel CCD photosensor, and a high-quality Carl Zeiss variable zoom lens.
I print many of my smaller images in my digital darkroom, using an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer, with archival Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks and the very finest photographic and fine art papers. I make use of professional photo labs for printing my larger images, as well as my canvas prints and floating mounts. The images I provide, if properly cared for, and if kept out of direct sunlight and high humidity conditions, will retain their colorfastness and remain resistant to fading and environmental damage for more than 100 years.
