Hello, welcome to my page and a big thanks for stopping by. I started photography early on in grade school. I was inspired by my grandfather who was a keen Kodak box and movie camera enthusiast with great skill. Later I was further inspired by several other local photographers who taught me many essential skills. I worked for many years as a freelance photographer doing editorial, commercial and industrial jobs. While most of my work was on 6X6 format, now I almost exclusively stay with the Nikons. I use Nikkor 20, 35, 50, 85mm f1.8 lenses and 18-55, 18-140, 180, 300 and 400mm as well. All the best, Dave
