I would like to see it all sell together as it is everything one needs to explore landscape photography.  Its about $15,000.00 worth of equipment.  I would like to get about half that for everything.  I would consider selling the PROGRAF printer by itself, but the camera equipment, I want to sell as a complete unit for simplicity sake.

I am located in Winston-Salem and due to the value, size, and weight of the property, I am not willing to ship.  This is a first come first serve affair.  I'm not interested in any auctions.  Make me a fair offer, and its yours.  All of this is in like new condition and everything works perfectly.

Contact me with offers at 336-681-0220.

You can view pictures of the equipment here.

  I wish I was a rich person! But then not being rich, as most of us are not these days! Is why so many photographers can not afford to do this as a Business. Even as a Hobby!
I know I no longer can do my Craft, Art Business any more for those very  reasons. It takes money for supplies and you have to have people with money to buy an Art Object! So I have a page of my older Art just to look at. It  just does not fit into daily family needs, So that is rough for Artists!
I wish Greg and everyone the very best in their lives of course, deep from my heart!
So Sorry for this kind of news!

I think when Greg went into this it was in the nature of an experiment, and I know I was one who began to take a great many more photos when I got a digital camera. I have been concerned about the occupation of photographer as simply not going to make anyone a living any more because of that digital explosion. I adore looking at photographs. And always will, but I agree more people are poor and are not going to buy photos as they once might have done.
