by day? mechanical engineer.
by night? photographer; you could call it an artistic affair.
this is me:
Let My Lens Do the Talking

I shoot with a Nikon D300. I used to shoot with a D40 and a Sony F-828 before that. Primes are really awesome and i'd like more of them in my bag. Zooms are still a must, though.

I am mostly self-taught, which i think is cool. But i still really like learning from other photogs. I have always seen my venture into photography as a trial-and-error type of experience.

Primes:
- Nikkor 35mm ƒ1.8 G
- Nikkor 50mm ƒ1.8 D
- Lensbaby Composer

Zooms:
- Tamron 17-50mm ƒ2.8
- Sigma 70-200mm ƒ2.8
- Nikkor 18-200mm ƒ3.5-5.6 VR
- Nikkor 18-55mm ƒ3.5-5.6
- Sigma 28-300mm ƒ3.5-5.6

Wish-List:
- Tokina 11-16mm ƒ2.8
- Nikkor 105mm ƒ2.8 VR

    "I TOTALLY agree with Elizabeth...optikal is amazing. He has a real passion for photography and he is pretty darn good at it! He gets this joyous look in his eyes when he sees something he may have overlooked for a potential photograph which makes me happy as well because I like to see my friend enjoying himself. He's not only talented, but smart, focused, and a real sweetheart. If you don't know this kid and his work, you're missing out BIG TIME!"
