Biography:
I started photography with my fatherís Argus C3 in high school (manual everything, did not even have built in light meter). During college bought a Mamiya Sekor 500 TL SLR with 50mm f1.8 lens, and later purchased a 35mm and 200mm lens. Also, while attending college in Fresno, CA, I got the opportunity to go on a Photography club field trip to Yosemite and meet Ansel Adams, what a thrill that was!

Many years later got back into serious photography with a Nikon F60 with Tamron 28-200mm lens, followed by an F100. Along the way, I acquired the Nikon 50mm F1.8, Tokina 28-70mm f2.6-2.8, Tokina 24-200mm, and Nikon 80-200 f2.8 lenses.

Later I obtained a Nikon D70 with 18-70 mm kit lens for my first foray into Digital. Then I purchased a Tamron 200-400mm lens. I then upgraded to a D200 with Nikon 18-200mm kit lens. I passed on the D300, thinking it was not enough of a step up to justify replacing my D200 and I waited and waited for a suitable D200 replacement. While waiting I purchased a Tokina 12-24mm f4 lens and a Sigma 150-600mm lens with dock. Finally, giving up on a real D200 replacement, I purchased a D7200 (just before the D500 was announced, but I am not unhappy I got the D7200 as it is a very impressive camera and suits my needs just fine). My latest purchase was a Tokina 100mm f2.8 Macro lens.

I currently have a two kit setup, my Walkaround kit and my Serious kit. The Walkaround kit consists of my D7200 with Nikon 18-200mm and Tokina 12-24mm plus a small bag, extra batteries and SD cards. My Serious kit is the D7200 with Tokina 12-24mm, Tokina 28-70mm, Nikon 80-200mm, Tokina 100mm Macro, SB800 flash, and larger bag. In addition, with either kit I carry the Sigma 150-600mm and a mono pod as needed.
