What is your level of photographic experience (beginner, amateur, pro)?

I am an enthusiast / amateur. I have taken a few courses and such over the years, but have been mostly self-taught in the art of photography. I consider myself to be fairly competent with natural light and composition, but unskilled in flash or strobist techniques. I have become fairly adept at post-processing, mostly by trying and (re-trying) processes I have seen on the web.

What types of photography do you enjoy (landscape, portrait, sports, macro, etc.)?

Landscape and nature photography is my primary interest. I have a growing interest in Nightscapes, which I find especially challenging. Would be interested in sports photography as well.

What subjects would you like to learn about (basic photo skills, portraiture, printing, Photoshop, color management, etc.)? If you have a particular skill and would like to offer a workshop to help others learn, please let us know.

I would be open to almost anything, including studio & flash photography, post-processing tips and techniques as well as techniques to use while "in the field." I just started shooting RAW a little over a year ago, and this year I made the change to start shooting primarily in MANUAL mode. Both of these changes caused a certain level of growth, and I am better for them today. Any classes or events that would result in similar growth would interest me.

What types of group activities would you like to see offered (hikes, model shoots, trips to urban or rural destinations, etc.)?

I tend to disappear into the mountains with my camera from time to time, so trips of that sort would be right up my alley. But frankly, I would be open to trips that put me outside my comfort zone and challenge me to come back with creative shots. Doing an urban photowalk for example, is something I would likely attend, as it would push me to learn and grow.

How did you find out about us?

I largely use MPix.com for printing.
