I discovered photography in 2009 with the purchase of a Nikon D90 and over the next few years I have graduated to the Nikon D800E. I spent the first few years taking workshops around the country. I've learned so much both technically and creatively from workshop leaders like Marc Adamus, Kevin McNeal, Ian Plant and others and I've met some great folks along the way a few of them I now shoot with on a regular basis. I now find it very liberating to take off for a week or two with a buddy and creating our own itinerary. I love all forms of photography, from Macro to Landscape and hope to keep the momentum going. I look forward to participating in this wonderful website, where the best of the best come to show their wares. I try to comment as often as I can, (not like I can use the excuse "I'm at work and didn't have the time"), but sometime even retired people run short on time. Hope to meet more of you.
