Gear + Kit

My history with photography starts back in the film days and like nearly everyone my age, transitioned to digital. I played with the first Apple QuickTake digital camera and became hooked on the potential in digital imaging. Including my film past, I’ve either owned or had substantial access to (items in green indicate current access):

  • Minolta MD (slr)
  • M42 (slr)
  • Olympus OM (slr)
