What is your favorite photographic subject?

Anything that I can get in the right focus - kidding aside, I am a technical photographer so for me the limit is me and my skill with light. I have enjoyed photographing people (models) in pre-arranged studio situations. I also like scenery, animals, car races - basically anything with action in it.

What type of camera do you use?

I started intentional photography back in 2007 using my first DSLR which was a Nikon D80. Then due to focusing speed frustrations and missing out on great shots I decided to upgrade and bought a D300. I know this camera well enough to take advantage of its important feature. My next stop is a full-frame. Probably a D700 if they are still around when I eventually am able to upgrade top professional grade gear such as the lenses that are needed with these cameras.

What type of Meetups would you like to participate in?

My intent with photography was to learn, teach, help, get out, and to see the world from a different point of view. I have operated my own meet-up group back when I lived in California and enjoyed very much the events that lead to discovery. Of course the social aspect of it has always been important to me - working with others, learning, teaching, exploring and having fun. I use public transportation at the moment and am therefore a little limited in mobility. So that is an important aspect for my photography adventure. Any Saturday of the week, anywhere that I can commute to would be a potentially great opportunity.

What type of workshops would you like to attend?

I have taught workshops before. I don't believe as much in post-processing as I do in better shooting which requires understanding three basic things: the scene, the gear and myself. I am very active with online groups with various post-processing software that I use and am active with critique groups as well. I am a contributor with and have a small portfolio. Workshops geared towards commercial photography would be of interest to me.
