Photography has been my hobby since I was something under 10 years old. So, lets say since 1969 or something like that. Yu can count the years 🙂 Can’t even remember what was my first camera but quite soon I kind of kept my fathers Nikkormat Ftn SLR in my use. I still have the camera and it’s fully functioning. Only the exposure meter need a new battery. As a kind of geek I’m easy to find gear and stuff I can not live without. For this reason I do have a lot of gear which I do not even remember to have, let alone use actively. But I do have a lot of experience trying all kind of stuff (and making bad purchase decisions).
I have done some studies in Open College of the Arts in UK. Unfortunately my time has been too limited to finish my studies. Profession and work first, hobbies second. Thats just how it is. If I ever have more time, I would very much like to start again. I found the studies very very useful. My photography really improved doing my assessments. Maybe later…
Too much to list here. I’m a Nikon user. My primary camera is a Nikon D700 + a ton of lenses, some flash guns and other stuff. I do also have a Micro Four Thirds system. Stupid as I am, wasting the little money I have in two separate systems. My “micro system” is a Panasonic GF1 and a Olympus OMD EM-5 and again, a ton of lenses. Funny as it is, I still kind of prefer the GF1 over the much newer and technologically superior EM-5.
I only shoot RAW and post process everything in Adobe Lightroom or / and Photoshop.
