I have called the Southwest home for all of my life. The privilege of living here has exposed me to some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the world. Photography is my excuse for exploring these wonderful landscapes. I have owned cameras all of my life, starting out with a Brownie. My first SLR was a relatively unknown camera from Kodak called the Instamatic Reflex. From there I graduated to a Canon A-1 and some decent lenses. I went digital starting with a Canon EOS 30D and the Canon 24-70 f2.8 L lense. I wanted more and purchased the Canon EOS 5D and several more lenses. I am now shooting with a Canon EOS 5d Mark II. There was something special about shooting film, but the quality of the images from digital is in my opinion, superior.
