I am a retired teacher of biological sciences and English (46 years). Presently, I am Track Photographer at Road America, a road racing track in Elkhart Lake and make many sports photos, both high school and college, for local newspapers. Besides photography, I spend a lot of time fly fishing, and riding my bicycle (http://public.fotki.com/lestension/seasonal-home-photos/fall/dsc2706.html) or my motorcycle (1976 Beemer R90/6....http://public.fotki.com/lestension/entropy/d/my-ride/dsc5965.html) The R90/6 has been sold and replaced by a 2004 BMW R1150RT...http://public.fotki.com/lestension/entropy/d/my-ride/5-01-12-04-beemer.html

I have several types of film and digital cameras. For this site, I use Nikon D3 and Nikon D4 bodies (depending on application) and an assortment of very nice Nikkor lenses. I also use a Panasonic Lumix with a genuine Leica lens. Excellent unit.
