Most of the images were recorded digitally using a Nikon D100; D200; D300, D800e or Leica R8 with a DMR digital back. I also shoot with a Leica D-Lux 3 & D-Lux5 pocket camera. The D100, D200 & D300 have since been retired.

My current Nikon gear includes the D800e and assorted Nikon lenses starting with the 10.5mm and ending with the 200~400 f:4 zoom lens with a 1.4 extender. My Favorite Nikon Lenses are the 14mm F: 2.8; 17~55 mm F:2.8 and the 70~200 f:2.8.

However, I find the Leica R8 is a joy to shot and has become my favorite camera. I love working with the 19 mm f:2.8, 80 mm f:1.4, 100 mm f:2.8 and the 28~90 f:2.8. The Humming Bird shot was caputed with a Leica 105~280 f:4.2.

(I am currently have been shooting with Zeiss lenses on the D800e.) A good tripod is a must and I have several that work well. I use a gear head rather than a ball head as I like the ability to fine tune the camera position. I currently use a Gitzo and a Giottos as well as a Leica table top for really low shots.

I have been using a Billingham 555 camera bag for my main bag and find that the Billingham design and quality are well worth the little extra price. I currently use an Adventure 10 for a backpack and find it well suited for the Leica equipment.

I am just learning how to use filters properly and work with Lee Filter Systems.
