What are you shooting with and what would you like to shoot with?

Right now, I'm shooting with a Nikon D90, armed with several fast primes(85 1.4, 35 1.8, 50 1.8), an ultrawide(Tokina 11-16 2.8) and the Sigma 70-200 2.8. I'll probably jump on the next D300 replacement, but I'm also interested in the smaller live view cameras, such as the GF1 as a compliment to my Nikon kit.

If you could sum up your style in one photograph what photo would it be?

For me, it's really impossible to pick any one photo to sum up my style. I've shot so many photos of so many things that it's hard to pick just one. Here's a photo I took about 5 years ago that I was especially enamoured with.


Talk about your inspirations and influences.

A lot of my inspiration comes from seeing other people's photos on flickr. If you take a look through my favorites, you can see a lot of what I really enjoy looking at. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sabotai/favorites/

Also, each one of those forum members already interviewed have inspired me!

Where have you not been that you want to photograph?

Anywhere, really! If anyone wants to sponsor a trip somewhere, let me know!

Talk about your most popular (in your opinion) photothreads.

While it didn't have the most responses, I thought this thread really summed up the city I currently live in, maybe better than any of my other threads.

Talk about your photothreads that didn't get the response you wanted.

It took a while for my NOLA threads to get many responses. One of them sat for a few weeks with only 4 responses.

Any tips or personal wisdom you'd like to pass on to others?

One of the most important things a photographer can know is how to use his camera in full manual. Learn how to shoot manual and your photos will get better and better.


Who should we ask these questions of next?

How about flash? He takes great photos that are always on point. I believe someone used the word "clarity" to describe his photos and I couldn't agree more.
