I am a 51 Year old, licensed photographer. I am originally from Pennsylvania but, have lived on the West Coast since 1978. I have always been a photo enthusiast but, had only gotten serious about it in 2002. I started with a Sony a100 10.1 megapixel DSLR, and a few lenses. I have since, upgraded to a Sony a850 Full-Frame, 24.6 megapixel, pro body. Accompanying that, I have the 16/35mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens, and the 'G: Series (Sony) 70/400mm. I typically shoot scenic but, have done other formats. IE; Weddings, Anniversaries, Debutante' Parties, models, architecture etc. My passion is still, scenic photography. I wish I had gotten serious about this as a younger man but, one is never too young to start something new! I will continue to aspire to get better, regardless of my age.
