I am a professional photographer who started taking photos when I worked for the local newspaper in 1972. I now use a Nikon D4s and so wish I had had such a good camera all along. I can sure tell the difference in quality the last three years that I have had the good camera. My favorite outdoor lens is the Nikon 28-300. I do alot of event photography and also am working on photographing ranch life on the last of the big buckaroo outfits of the West. Most of these remote desert ranches are from 300,000 to 1.8 million acres in size. I just have a few left and I am trying to wind down my travels so that I can begin the work of organizing and fine tuning my body of work.
