About Don McGillis

I trace my photographic life with the milestones connected to the cameras I've used. My first camera was a screw mount Pentax I it used for years, learning exposure, composition and darkroom technique in my late teens and early twenties. In college I studied motion picture production, learning the craft of story telling, camera movement, editing, dialogue and sound. I shot stills with a Pentax K-mount.

After college I owned a little Nikon EM which began over twenty years of Nikon ownership culminating in five years of work with a Nikon F3. My house was robbed and all my gear was stolen, including a vintage 1957 'Japan-only' Nikomat. The only thing left behind was my Burke & James Saturn 57, a Korean War era view camera on which I learned studio still life.

I retooled with a Minolta 700si, a very sophisticated camera at the time. Then along came digital and I settled on a Konica-Minolta 7D, it was with this camera I shot a cloudy landscape across the Beara Peninsula in Ireland in 2006 and realized that I wanted to continue to shoot in beautiful, sometimes rugged, locations.

For the last four years or so I have used a Sony a900, a retro feel 24MP workhorse reminiscent of the Nikon F3, I expect to shoot with it for years to come. I am a travel, landscape and studio still life photographer, today having been published many times, I remain, at my core, a maker of personal images. I hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to expanding my portfolio here. Thanks for stopping by, I sincerely appreciate your interest and hope you enjoy my work.
