Salvē!

Nice to meet you. I hope you're not a stalker. If you are, my last name is Necessary (not a joke, or is it?), and my first name is Super Lucas. I really love hiking*! I really don't love things like falling off cliffs, being run over, etc. Want to see if I'm totally uncool? Here's your chance! In the past 7 years, I've done a few things, including paramedicine, working as a freight train conductor for BNSF (which was interesting, at least insofar as 37,000,000 lb vehicles can be interesting), and performing some job or other for Halliburton in the oil fields.

Being around me will inherently increase your social standing. I've lived about everywhere and try to be content in all circumstances.


Current Residence: In the Rocky Mountains! Mostly the Wind River Range.
Current Job: Air Traffic Controller
Personal Quote: There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is a proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is condemnation before investigation. (Verus amicus est alter idem.)

* I've hiked over 150 miles this year, mostly above 10,000 feet, with a large pack, and sometimes with snowshoes.

Hello! Mr. Feral Mountain Person, sir? 
I was just wondering what Camera, Lenses and Equipment you use. (If you don't mind telling that is.)
Please and thank you!

Wonderful, whimsical Willow! You caught me at a good time as I just came off duty for a whole MONTH! And a bad time seeing as I've been awake for a billion hours.
I use(d) the following cameras:
Canon 10D (retired)
Canon 20D (retired)
Canon 60D 
Canon T1i (semi-retired, light-use only)

I use kit 18-55s and a Sigma 75-300. Since I'm a casual photographer I don't need to invest the money in anything else. The pics are just for my memories. I have borrowed nicer glass from others, but I don't do telephoto and honestly the Canon kit 18-55 glass is good enough for most things. For portraits the Canon 50mm fixed lens is great and cheap. I do plan on buying a Rokinon 14mm lens for astrophotography in the future. 

Other items:
-infrared remote shutter release (invaulable)
-Manfrotto 190 tripod (extra weight helps)
-various filters
-Dynamic-photo HRD (highly recommended although yeah, HDR blows these days, but I still like it, so sue me)

I am rather honored that you asked me that, BTW. You're either crazy or mysteriously kind. Made my day! 

Oh, and I have a couple of Lowepro camera backpacks, but since I hike a ton, I just put my camera in my huge hiking backpack. That's obviously going to be based on your needs. I racked up over 250 miles this year above 8500' in elevation, and that means that my needs are a little different than that of most people. Now go get shootin' some pictures! :)
