I'm thinking about purchasing a Jamis FS frame and moving all my parts over to it but till then my hard tail does a great job, once i figure out the perfect way to bring my camera with me i will be heading to some remote locations for pictures.

There is a state park here near San Antonio called Government Canyon and I'm really looking forward to riding into the back country to take some photos. The ability to take all 3 of my hobbies and join them is wonderful! (just learned how to make panoramas with CS2.

Jamis is a good company but i recommend Specialized , due to the fact they have the 4-bar link suspension which is the best type of suspension
i worked in a bike shop for 4 years. thats why i was able to put what i have on my bike the only thing original on the bike is the fame , fork and shock . EVERYTHING else is upgraded to Shimano XT or XTR

i hate , BUT LOVE my hobbies , all my hobbies are expensive :(
mountain biking, drumming and now photography

but ehh , oh well gotta spend your money some how.

here are a few more photos of my bike :D

Hey guys! Nice to see you have fun with your bikes. But the threads starts to get a little off-topic :wink:
Perhaps you can tell us all about how you carry your photographic gear on a ride, protect it from mud or take action shots :idea:

If im doing a casual Cross Country ride I simply use a camera backpack. Safest way to go because your body acts as the shock absorber for the camera.
