Were you ever a film photographer?

Yes, mostly 35mm but I also have experience with medium and large format film cameras.

On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being an expert / instructor), how proficient are you in Photoshop?

10 (if it's possible), been working in it since the beginning of v2.0. For about 9 years, I worked with it intensively (like 8 hours a day) when I was a scanner operator and photo retoucher at a prepress shop.

Which cameras do you use? Make & model (ie. Nikon D700, Canon 5D MKII, or Sony A900).

Nikon D70, Nikon D300, Minox DCC Leica M3, iPhone 5. Also have a bunch of old film Nikons that are part of my MUSEUM OF OUTDATED PHOTOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY: 2 Nikon F3hp's, 2 Nikon FE's, 2 Nikon FM2, 1 Nikon F2 all with motor drives.

If you could go back to before the camera was invented in 1825, with your camera, what event or person would you photograph, between the time of Adam and Eve and 1825

I would go back to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I don't know how big of an event people really thought it was. Would also like to have hung out with the painter René Magritte.

Introduction

I have been photographing for 25+ years professionally. I have also been a graphic designer during the same period. I have found that I can learn things as a graphic designer that can help me as a photographer.

What Mark G. is saying about this Meetup Group

It was an excellent meetup Phil, I'm glad to have been part of the very first meeting. James had some excellent work, inspiring and he was bubbling with great information. Dameane (sp), what can I say other than his word needs to get out to photographers nationwide. Too often we put our technical abilities at the front of the stage coach and he reminded us of why and how to succeed. He should make an appearance at ASMP as well. See you next month.
