Cameras

Starting with an Argus C3 in 1968 I have owned many cameras and lenses: my first SLRs were Pentax (small, and light), but I switched to Olympus in the mid 80s for the excellent spot meter in the OM4-T. For many years I used an Olympus Stylus Epic for climbs where ease of use, and weight, were at a premium.

I transitioned to digital with a Canon point & shoot - finding incredible power in a small package. After a few months with it I realized I wouldn't be using my film cameras much any more so I sold them and bought a Canon digital SLR and haven't looked back. To save weight I sold my Canon gear and transitioned to Sony mirorless - first an NEX-7, and now an A7rII, my first full frame camera which is giving me fantastic results.

Film
For many years I used Kodachrome 25 and 64. In the 80s I switched to Fuji Velvia 50 or Provia 100.

Video
Through the 90s I put still photography on the back burner and concentrated on a project to video tape
ski descents of the Cascade volcanoes.

Computer
I use a Mac Pro running the latest version of Photoshop and a variety of other software tools. Slides are scanned with a Nikon Super Coolscan 4000.

Printer
I use an Epson 7900, and a variety of paper.

Panoramas
Stitching a series of shots in the computer to create high resolution panoramas is my specialty.
I can print these onto canvas, coat them with protective varnish, then stretch them on back frames so that no additional matting or framing is needed.
