Thanks again for having me... someone on my welcome thread said they would like to see some of what I do... so here is a quick overall gamut of my photography...

I primarily shoot railroads and work as a staff photographer for the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum... its a great "job" if you would like to call it that... this year though my girlfriend and I have been really busy with buying our first home... its been a long process so I havent gotten out as much as I would like to... all in all worth is worth... and we couldnt be happier... :) the other genres of photography I enjoy would be IR, Macro, Extreme Sports, Wildlife, Landscapes... did I leave any out? :p

Yes, they're great. Very nice., I have zero talent when it comes to photograpghy, so I always enjoy seeing what others can do.

Wonderful pictures. I know the feeling back in 1997 I was getting married,buying our first house and going thru court to get custody of my two oldest (which I won) all in one month. So I guess that is where all the grey hair started. Congradulations on your house and keep the great pics. coming.

Thanks Chris... and yea... between the grey and the loss of hair... I would not have any hair at all...LOL

Winter is coming though... and that being our favorite season we will be back in full force shooting again... we backpack our gear in to get shots while riding the snowmobiles... and shots for our club's (Schroon Lake - North Hudson) webpage... we try and spend most of our time riding the powder off trail (in legal locations 110%) and save our trail riding for relaxing and quieting down a bit... so these arent shots of us how you would see us on a trail with other riders around (just a disclaimer for the faint of heart...LOL)

the girlfriends son... first year riding... between myself and my buddy Dan.. he has some decent teachers...

Great shots I love the clarity and how you can even see the snow falling off. What camera did you shoot with? I am looking @ buying the Canon mark5 II when it comes out . I just have to sell a few of my toys I don't use anymore. Per the boss (wifey)

I do all my winter shooting with my 1D Mark II since its a bit more weather proof... the big thing is the lens when you are talking stop motion... since the focus speed and the wider aperture allow for a much run through when shooting... my girlfriend shoots with a Nikon D200... both of us carry 70-200/2.8 lenses when we go out...

The 5D2 is going to be a great camera... just as all the Canon and Nikon gear is but I personally am not sold on the video portion... it seems though that is the new trend and the 5D2 DOES produce some nice video from what I have seen...

Hi,

Thanks for posting, you have some very nice stuff. I look forward to more, especially if you take any trips over to our neck of the woods. It'd be nice to see you impart your style on our beloved White Mountains.

I see you converted a camera to infrared. Who did you go through to do that???

Best,
Jim

Thanks Jim... normally we do get up that way once a year on our way to Old Orchard Beach... but this year was the year of no vacation away from home... so it will probably be next season before I get up that way...

I have three IR converted cameras currently... each by different converting companies... my G7 was set up full spectrum (clear glass) by Mountain Banyan Camera, the XTi is an enhanced IR (650nm) conversion done by Lifepixel and I have a XT done with a regular conversion (720nm...this one though is closer to 750nm so it seems) from MaxMax...

They all do such different effects (aside from putting comparable filtering on the G7) that I decided to keep all three... when I am travelling on the motorcycle and want IR I tend to take the G7 with a pack of filters...
