Greetings all,

 

My name is Randy and I am a dad, designer, and photographer currently living in Toronto. I'm pretty off and on with my participation on pages like this, but I do look forward to sharing my work and exchanging knowledge with all of you when I can – and I will certainly participate on the newly minted Facebook page as I spend way to much of my time on that platform.

I started shooting with a Nikon FE2 and am now shooting a gripped D800 and F4s after a brief stint with Olympus at the dawn of digital. I'm turning into more and more of a Nikkor fanatic with each passing day and am always on the hunt for new (old) glass. I was primarily a hobbyist landscape, nature, and wildlife shooter, but I am moving into more professional work which is mostly focused on interior photography and portraiture. I also really enjoy shooting product and macro when I get the time to set up and make it happen. These newer endeavors have created a whole new focus on lighting and off camera flash, which I have enjoyed learning immensely while I continue to struggle.

 

My Nikon/Nikkor collection includes...

 

Primes:
20mm 1.8G

24mm 2.8 AF

28mm 3.5 H Auto (factory Ai-ed)

28mm 2.8 Ai-S

35mm 2D

50mm 1.8D

50mm 1.4 S Auto

50mm 1.4 Ai-S

60mm 2.8D Micro

85mm 1.4D

105mm 2.5 PC Auto (factory Ai-ed)

105mm 2D DC

135mm 3.5 Q Auto (factory Ai-ed)

135mm 2.8 Ai-S

300mm 4.5 H Auto (factory Ai-ed)

I also have the Voigtländer 58mm ƒ1.4 Nokton

 

Zooms:
14-24mm 2.8G

20-35mm 2.8D

28-70mm 2.8D AF-S

35-70mm 2.8D

80-200mm 2.8D (two-ring)

200-400mm 4G VRII

 

Digital bodies: D90 | D7000 | D800
Film bodies: F | F Photomic | FE2 | F4s | 2x FG
Flashes: 4x SB-600 | SB-700 | SB-910 | SU-800

 

I also shoot my Rolleiflex 3,5 A quite a bit, hence the pic (which was shot entirely with Nikon...)
