I started photography in the summer of 1975 with an old 35mm rangefinder, upgraded to an SLR the following year and transitioned to DSLR in 2005. I now enjoy the advantages of mirrorless but prefer a DSLR and fast glass for capturing the action. My passion is nature photography although I also like old decrepit subjects, abstracts, and car shows. I caught the aviation bug in 2009 when I lived in Las Vegas and attended Aviation Nation. I look forward to improving my ground-to-air skills of prop planes in which I find quite challenging.
