Tell the group a bit about yourself; What kind of photography do you like to do? Do you considder yourself a novice or an expert? Would you like to teach or learn something about this amazing field? And finally, what kind of food can you cook?

I am a Field Tech for CPI covering Western Canada - I completed my Certificate in Photography at SAIT. I have been taking digital pictures since digital cams came into being, and lots of 35mm prior. Weddings, events, and commercial work. Enjoy teaching new to SLR Users. Questions ??

Are there any events that you would like to see us do as a group?

Fund raising and Charitable events are my favorites.

Of every picture you have ever seen, what is the one that is the most striking, most memorable for you.

A 35mm slide I took when I was 16, of a summer sunrise in the Ghost river area at 4:45 am. The sky was a blue I didn't know existed, and the mountains in the foreground were mere silhouettes. Made me want to know how to that again.

If you could have one camera and one lense for the rest of your life to use for everything, based on what's out there now, what would you pick?

My Canon Mark IV. It has all the speed and performance I need, and my[masked] IS USM F2.8 Lens which I already use and love is fine for most anything. But then again, Christmas is never far off, and new cameras are always calling ... buy me!

Is there an event up and coming, or was there an event in history that you would have like to have been there to photograph and why?

Would like to have been about 2 miles away from ground 0 on 911, with the camera gear I now own. Then I could have got some "real" images, not the "govt approved" story pictures the media was allowed to feed us.


I'm a Digital PERSON of interest, and love taking all kinds of pics. Actually I still have a single film body, which sits and reminds me of the good old days of paying through the nose for developing. Anyone want to buy it? :)

What Ameer S. is saying about this Meetup Group

An excellent opportunity to ask those really dumb questions we've all had to go through.
