Portrait: Barbara J BeckMy Name is Barb Beck. I have been taking pictures for 35 years or so. I have been taking photographs for 15 years. I love hiking and take many of my photos on backpacking trips. This is the year I finally got a new photo camper and I am fortunate enough to be able to travel the country with all of my photo stuff and stop where I like.

My gear is mainly Nikon from by trusty 8008 to the D90. Hoping to get a D800 if they ever get them out here to the West! New additions are the small Canon G11 and the even smaller Olympus Tough. I love the digital! Barb
