Experienced and learning more daily! Photographed the 1975 Playmate of the Year as Candi and I went to high school together and I used her in ads for the school paper. Have been published by the AP years ago. Published on the Olympus Web site.
Nature/wildlife, sports and people.
Olympus E-5, E-30 and E-520 with[masked]mm f/2.0, 50mm Macro f/2.0, 12 - 60 SWD, 50 - 200 SWD, and 18 - 180 mm lenses; and Olympus Stylus TG-1 and 1030SW for underwater shots. FL50R with Gary Fong Diffuser.
Chance to meet other photographers in the area, learn and improve abilities. Meet with others to go to interesting places to shoot. I guess you never visit local sites and seems there are some great locations here in the area!
Have been taking photos since the mid 70's, started with an Argus C3, progressed to several Pentax's and a Yashica Mat Twin Lens. Discovered the digital age with Olympus and now use an OM-D E-M1 mirrorless and E-5, E-520, TG-1 and 1030SW.
Great opportunity to meet people with the same interests and find great places to shoot photos! You will learn something at each event that you attend. There are all levels of expertise and everyone is friendly and willing to share!
