About me:

First, let me tell you, i really enjoy photography and image related tasks & products.
Photography caught me at age 15 (1980) and has not left me since.
I had lens fever but i think it passed, i do enjoy using my gear to produce the best images i can, to show and share. I regularly try to improve my skills and enjoy sharing that with others too.

Here's my Gear : 'Adult Toybox'
EOS 1Dx, EOS 5D mk III,
EOS 100D,
Powershot G10, EOS 500n.
