My interest with photography began in high school when a teacher loaned me a 35mm camera with some black & white film for a visual art project. Those photos are long gone but the fascinations
continued though the years. In 1996, after relocating to the Pacific Northwest and my passion evolved for landscape and nature photography. With the encourgement of my wife family and friends, I launched Naturesimage Photography. The website that you are viewing today is the result of several years work.
As of 2013 NP we adopted IR photography which has become my a major focus. IR gives the viewer a different perspective of the world around us by showing light that our eyes are not able to see on their own. When we take photographs using infrared-equipped cameras, we get exposed to the world that often looks very different from that we are accustomed to seeing. Colors, textures, leaves and plants, human skin can reflect IR light in unique and interesting ways. To acomplish this we had a Nikon D200 modified by LifePixel. Check our links page for informaiton on LifePixel and IR modificaitons.
Another notable change here at NP is we have moved indoors and started doing some limited studio work. Most notably the concept of using projectors to project images onto models, having the ability to control light and shadows the results are amazing. You can find most of that work here: Brian Sears

Nikon D750 Digital SLR is our primary camera body. We are also currently using aD200 camera bodies converted to support IR Photography. If you are an advanced photographer and looking for a digital SLR you won't be disappointed with the D750.
Nikon 400mm F4, Dollar for Dollar this is a great lens. If you’re looking for a 400mm consider this lens before paying for the more expensive 400mm F2.8.

Lens options to reduce cost....
In my opinion Tamron Lens have come a long way in providing quality optics at a cost most advance photographers can afford. We are currently using several Tamron lens and have been very happy with the quality and performance of these lens.
Tamron 90mm Macro f2.8 1:1
Tamron 28-75mm XR DI f2.8
Tamron 17-50mm XR DI II f2.8
Tripod & Head, Gitzo carbon fiber model G1227 is light weight and compact just a bit over 24 inches without the head. The Wimberley gimbal head is a bit on the heavy side but it will support most lenses up to 400 f4. While this combination works well for us, you should check out several before making your decision.
One additional item I would highly recommend for your D750 is the vertical grip battery pack. This is a vertical control grip and provides for dual battery operation. The grip will make shooting vertical more comfortable and with the duel batteries shooting time between 6 and 8 hours between charges. (Note: battery charge will very depending on activity.)
