What’s in the Bag

If you are reading this page, then you already know that photo gear is, as my wife calls it, the never ending money pit.  Photo gear and its replacements are one of the costs covered by the prices set for the prints and services I provide.

Over time, your real investment is in the lenses.  When I decided to invest in professional level gear, I agonized over which camera makers to select knowing that was going to be a long term commitment.  After long study, I selected Nikon as the manufacturer of consistently highest quality lenses and at a reasonable price.  The tipping point in my decision was the fact that every Nikon Lens made since 1968 will still fit the new cameras showing a commitment to the photographer’s investment.
