About me:

A photographer since studying photography in the late 1970s. With 40 years of dealing with editors and clients I'm basically here to laugh at the B.S. spouted by the photo forum "experts" and forum pros. Plus getting ideas for the occasional blog post extracting the urine out of some of the B.S. spouted on here.
