Camera

I have been a Nikon shooter for the past 40 years and still use two lenses from 40 years ago for my film camera.  My primary camera is a Nikon D800 with a 28-300mm zoom lens.  Many of the photos on this site were taken with a Nikon D7200 using either a 12-24mm wide angle lens or an 18-70mm lens.

Computer

I have an Apple iMac with a 27 inch screen and a 24in. Apple Cinema Display attached.  I used a MacBook Air when I travel.  It is incredibly light and powerful.  I  download each days’ images and then catalog them and make basic adjustments in Lightroom.

Software

I use both Adobe Lightroom 5 and Adobe Photoshop CC to make image adjustments.  I use Lightroom to catalog and do basic adjustments and Photoshop for final editing and preparation for printing.

Printing

All images are printed on a Canon iPF6100 printer using Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper.  The 6100 handles roll and sheets up to 24 in. wide making prints up to 22 x 36 in. routine as well as even longer panoramas.
