About me:

I am a professional photographer with 40+ years in the field. Most of my work is in the corporate and PR fields. I am also pretty new to the digital world (about 3 years since I put the Leicas in the safe and sold the Nikon F-2's - I used them up until about a year ago!) - on eBay. That means I will probably ask some dumb questions from time to time. Bare with me.
