Q. Who does the photography for your site?

A.   Unless credited otherwise, I do!  I’m a professional photographer that specializes in fine art portraiture (pets and people).  I’m also a graphic & web designer which comes in very handy in so many ways! 

Feel free to visit my photography portfolios here and here.

Q. What photography equipment do you use?

A.  I’m a big Nikon fan and I currently use a Nikon D500 DSLR camera.  I mainly use 3 of my favorite Nikkor prime lenses:  AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G, and AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G.   

I also use this tripod from Neweer.  A tripod is very important for interior photography. And finally, I use Case Air’s wireless tethering system which has been quite an incredible tool.

I use Photoshop CS6 and CC, and On1 software to edit my photos.
