I currently use and love a Canon 7D. I'm also a big fan of taking shots with my iPhone. It's amazing what you can accomplish with it.
Photography is strictly a hobby for me, so most of the time I just allow myself to photograph whatever takes my fancy. A few of my current favourites are posted here. Check out my blog for more.
* I do take portfolio & digital entry photographs of art for myself and offer this service to fellow artists. I can also be persuaded to take pictures of other subjects... people, pets, etc. Contact me for information and rates.
