I first became passionate about photography while living in Japan.
I used a Minolta film camera XD-11 in Tokyo and took classes at Yodobashi with Canon representatives.
In Seattle I was mentored by Fred Nick of the University of Washington, director of the CSSCR Laboratories.
At the University of North Dakota I teach Communication 319 Digital Imaging courses along with Adobe Creative Suite training.
My current Camera bodies are a Canon 7D (gripped) and a 5DmkIII (also gripped).
I use the following lenses:
- Canon EF-S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5
- Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116
- Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L
- Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS
- Canon EF 70-200 f/4L IS
- Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II
- Canon EF 100mm Macro f/2.8L IS
- Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM
I process in Lightroom5 with Nik Plugins and move between LR5 and Photoshop 6.
For hosting I use Zenfolio with direct export from Lightroom via the Jeffrey Freidl plugin.
I use Manfrotto tripods, Lowepro camera backpacks and holsters, and B&W UV Haze filters.
