I’ve been hiking in the mountains of Western North Carolina (WNC) since October of 2012 but my time as a photographer is much longer than that, dating back to my teens. I currently shoot with a Nikon D3200, although the early pics on my blog were taken with a Nikon D70. I use a trio of lenses but primarily i stay with a 35/100 wide angle and a 50/150 zoom. I have recently started using a Sigma 150/500. i shoot almost exclusively in manual mode after one test shot in auto-mode. All of the pictures on my site are mine.
