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 70-200 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.

    Thank you for sending me a reply so quickly, even though you are not even in town at the moment. Its nice that you did. Was feeling a bit grumpy as unexpected company came in from out of town to visit and interrupted plans to go shooting at the sunset meetup. We had a nice visit and I will just have to go sunset shooting another time. I hear they come every night and one almost like it in the morning. Where have I been?

    Hello Ameer. I see a number of people in this meetup have the Canon 1D. Would love to see and talk about it close up sometime. I enjoy my little 40D but father nature tells me I need another one with smaller numbers on it.

    I met you a little while ago in Chapters Book store and I would like to thank you for your advise on books. I have read one and am now going to start on another book. Are there any 'meetup's on a Saturday morning?

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, I was away on a business trip this last week. I could come pick it up if it's ok with you? or if you intend on going to the next meetup, I would be more than happy to get it from you then.
