About me:

Since I was a kid I wanted to be able to be into photography. The first encounters with it was on an old Smena film compact camera in early 1980s. After a long hiatus I started to make some photos in 2004 with a camera from one of my friends. Back then the prices of cameras were quite high and my first camera was a Sony P100 in 2005. Since then I had a series of compact cameras (Canon A610 and Fujifilm S6500 were my favorites) and in 2008 my first dSLR (the prices went down quite a lot to afford it). Recently I bought an Olympus XZ-1 that is amazing (not up to the IQ of dSLR but something you can rely upon when you have no dSLR with you).
I improved a lot those years but I am no professional. I like to document the places where I travel so that's my main subject. After 10 years in the photography realm I am still improving mainly by taking photos.
I do photography as a hobby my profession is materials engineer. I am also working as a management consultant mainly on investment financing and process optimization.
