Q: What equipment do you use?

A: Most of my recent pictures were taken with a Canon EOS 20D digital camera. I started with the basic Canon EFS 18-55 mm lens (pictured on the right) specifically made for digital cameras equipped with a less than full frame sensor. I wasn't very impressed with the image quality of the lens, so I invested in a Canon EF 24-70 mm f/2.8L USM lens (shown on the camera), a much more sophisticated, higher quality lens that could also be used with a full frame sensor (eventually).

For many of the pictures on this site I used a Canon Rebel G camera with a 38-80 mm and a 75-300 mm Canon EF lens. This camera served very well despite being an inexpensive SLR. I only "retired" it after switching to digital. A few pictures, including the "leaf close-up" were taken with a russian made Zenit 12XP camera (below) with a 58 mm Helios-44-M-4 lens. This is a very simple and really heavy basic SLR from the good old USSR equipped with a simple but optically reasonable lens. I bought it around 1985 and used it ever since. It still takes good pictures...

Q: Are these photographs for sale?

A: Not at this time, however, I am planning to make these photographs available for purchase in the near future. For further information, or if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please e-mail me.
