I’m a retired steelworker, and have been photographing for about 35 of my 65 years. I now shoot strictly digital with 2 Nikon D80s. I keep an 18-55mm DX zoom on one and a 70-300mm VR on the other. On occasion I’ll use my D50 for macro.

I’m fairly open with my subject preferences, but lean towards landscapes, nature subjects, trains and classic/vintage cars.. As you will see will see with my material, I use both traditional and creative approaches, either with camera or with Photoshop.
