I used to tell myself;

“One day… I’ll sit down and give that photography lark a go. Yep. One day…”

That day finally arrived this past winter (after about 8 years…) I’m still looking to find my ‘niche’, so far I’m just enjoying everything so much its hard to tell what I’m liking the most, but hey!

As of November 2010 I am shooting with a Nikon D700, SB-400 and SB-26 Speedlight used as an optical slave, plus the lenses below;

Nikkor 14-24 2.8
Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8
Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VRII

And until recently I shot with a Nikon D90 with the following lenses;

Nikkor 18-105mm 3.5-5.6 DX
Nikkor 50mm Prime 1.8
Nikkor 70-300mm 4-5.6
Tamron 90mm Macro 1:1 2.8

I still use these lenses, all barring the 18-105 DX.

You can also find the following equipment used in my older work;

Nikon D50
Nikkor 18-55mm 3.5 – 5.6
Tamron 70-300mm 4 – 5.6 Tele-Macro

I always shoot RAW and use Photoshop or Lightroom to convert those files.

I started out on my Dad’s Nikon D50, and then spent a good while replacing all the kit of his that borrow… but it was an invaluable experience to use it all, thanks Dad!

I hope you enjoy what you find here. Any and all comments are greatly appreciated.
