I’m asked very often about how I run my business: What I shoot with, what cameras I recommend, lenses, framing resources, back country equipment, art show supplies and website advice. There’s lots of great choices out there in photo gear and almost any modern camera/lens is capable of producing fine images. No amount of equipment will ever substitute for creative vision. That being said, I do believe in buying high quality products, and making them last a long time. The gear I’ve included here has served me well over the years.
