favorite camera is the 4X5 Linhof Technikardan view camera.
Some may think a view camera is too big for trekking around the mountains,
but the Technikardan folds up into a small flat "package" that fits nicely
in his photo backpack, and it weighs no more than most field cameras.
Also, because it is a view camera it lends itself nicely when Alan has an
opportunity for architectural photography. Due to the difficulty and delay
in getting film processed these days Alan's camera of choice is now a digital SLR camera, a
Canon 5D Mark II. He has used many
other cameras over the years including 120 medium format and 120 panoramic.

processed photographic film is digitally scanned in order to be utilized in
other media, and of course digital cameras produce a
ready-for-post-processing photo already in digital format. Alan actually began using digital and Adobe Photoshop back in
the early-1990s in the
picture post card market, and along with Adobe Light Room continues to use it as his photo editing
program of choice.
If you have
any questions or concerns regarding the quality or detail of the
photo-to-print process please feel to contact Alan directly.
