In 1977 I started to take black and white pictures using a Nikon FM SLR with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. In 1992 I switched to Minolta with the professional level 9xi SLR camera. Eight years later I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 990 digital camera, which I quickly found to be way too limiting so I started over in 2005 using the Canon digital camera system. Today my photographs and images are created and processed with assistance from :


  • Camera and lenses from Canon
  • Camera tripod system from Sachtler
  • Think Tank photo backpack and travel pack
  • Lenovo Thinkpad and Lubuntu operating system
  • Eizo wide color gamut photography monitor
  • Darktable photography workflow and raw developer
  • PhotoLine digital image processing application


For various reasons I have completely stopped using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and Microsoft Windows.
