Get on a boat, get out and hike, take plenty of pictures, enjoy life, document it, remember it!

More than thirty years of film and digital archives are presented here. For a decade I worked in and managed camera stores* in the Pacific Northwest. I am a business owner now but as I find time, I pursue boating - power and sail, and hiking. These activities place me in the environments that provide rewarding photographs. Please take a look at my galleries, leave a comment, and vote if you are inclined. There is also a guestbook to sign. Your feedback is important to me!

I first discovered photography through shooting 126 cartridge film in the '60's. My first 35mm experience was with an Argus C3. Throughout the years I have primarily used Nikon equipment. Lately I have been shooting with a Nikon D7000 16.7 megapixel DSLR. Much work is from my Nikon D40X. All my lenses are Nikkor lenses with a range from 12mm to 300mm.

In the past I have shot film with Canon, Pentax, Nikon, and Miranda 35mm's. Several images are from medium format and larger including; Pentax 6x7, Mamyia 645, Yashica TLR, Fuji 617, Hassleblad and Crown Speed Graphic 4x5.

In an effort to get back to my roots, I picked up a couple of old pieces of equipment; an old Nikkormat FTn and Nikkor 35-105mm zoom lens and I exposed some 35mm film. Many of my best photographic experiences were with the Nikon Nikkormat in the 1970's. I tried to match the quality of the current digital work but couldn't. I've concluded that digital has indeed surpassed film in quality. Though I feel comfortably nostalgic when handling my Nikkormat with film, I have moved into the digital realm.

See Nikkormat Gallery for some historical shots.
