What specifically would like to learn here?

I'm looking for opportunities to meet with other photographers, try new venues for photo ops, and learn new tips and tricks.

What's your dream photo shoot?

That's hard to say. I used to travel extensively and have had the opportunity to shoot in quite a few places and at unique events.

Favorite place or subject to shoot?

I'm a big auto racing fan and enjoy photographing races. I also enjoy spending the day at the zoo or in a national park (Yellowstone, etc) and photographing wildlife.

Rate your skill level.

I'd probably say advanced intermediate. I've done film and digital. I'm pretty good at Lightroom and Photoshop. I also like to experiment when I can. Having a hightech background, I find it a lit easier to dive into new hardware and software products. I guess I understand the "method of their madness." The biggest challenge I have had was just trying to find the time to keep my skills sharp and experiment with new techniques. I have the time now so I'm taking a deeper dive into things.

What camera equipment do you use?

I currently have a Canon 5D. It's held up well over the years and has seen a lot of the world. It will most likely get replaced when the newer models come out this summer (so the rumors say). On a recent trip to Monterrey, California, I also used a Nikon D3X for a few days. I don't really have a manufacturer preference. But, sadly, lenses and accessories are manufacturer specific. My lenses span manufacturers. Canon - 17-40mm, 50mm,[masked]mm. Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, and one or two others that aren't coming to mind right now.


Hi all, after spending about 20 years in the high tech field, I've decided to spend a little time embracing my creative and artistic side. Photography has always been part of my life and I want to spend a bit more time with it.
