    BIG UPDATE COMING THIS WEEKEND GUYS!
    Last updated 01/10/09 - 1.40pm

    PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!

    Background
    sir_bazz and myself had a quick chat, and you guys thought it would be a good idea too, so here it is - OCAU Camera Club Mark II! The original OCAU Camera Club thread can be found here.

    The OCAU CCm2 will list willing members of OCAU's Photography sub-forum, from beginners to working pros. Whilst people are encouraged to post their gear and wares and link back in their signatures, I personally hope that this club will help facilitate potential meet up/shoots based on the geographical location of each member. It's all about creating more opportunities to get out there (or into studios) and shoot! This listing may also be helpful for the non-photographers of OCAU to help identify their local shooters for potential commissions.

    I will be updating the list as often as it is feasible, and as we get a bigger statistical sample I'll start churning out some random stats about the community.

    Post Format
    Please use the following general format for consistency. Provide as much or as little information as you please, but at least put a location in there! :)

    If you have any major changes to your equipment after your original post, please send me a PM so I can update accordingly (for stats purposes, not essential).

    Biography:
    My first taste of photography Was using an old Digital camera which shot in sequence mode, it saved files onto a floppy disk haha. My parents had a Canon Eos SLR they purchased for traveling over seas, and after they got back they never used it, So I adopted it for a short while, learning the basics. My parents decided to purchase a digital body, and at the time the 30D was hot stuff, unfortunately I never really got to use it as they soon moved to NSW. I purchased a Sony T70 and this was my first Digital camera I owned myself, I bought the camera Because I liked the look of the photos, aswell as the Macro mode. A few of my friends Had digital SLR's, and I have always wanted one, so I decided to go out and buy one. I purchased A Canon 40D with a nifty fifty and that was all I needed to get going. I was on a budget, and so did lots of DIY stuff. I was in my local camera store, getting some prints done when I had about 15 minutes to wait, so I thought myself, I'll give a 5D Mark II a try, see what its like. This was the begining of the end, my 40D just felt so inferior after playing with the 5D II, and my various assortment of lenses had nothing on the Canon 24-105/4L. As expected, I bought a 5D Mark II, and some nice pieces of glass, and the rest of the gear I wanted and from that day on have not looked back.

    Biography: Currently studying engineering at QUT in Brisbane. I Decided to get into photography as a hobby in dec 08. I've always loved the high quality photos that SLR's produce and wanted to experiment with one myself. Been loving it so far, and I'm expanding my knowledge and gear slowly but surely. I'm always looking for a bargain or a way to get that "pro look" without spending too much money...gotta love being a student.

    Biography: Started off this round of photography as a hobby about 4 1/2 years ago when i got a 20D. Went off exploring some of the crazier more technical sides of photography (Panos, HDRs before they were super cliched, Infrared, fishies, etc) before rediscovering film on a trip to NZ. Wow, nothing beats Velvia in the spring time. Eventually 'settled' more or less on panos being my style, and invested in an S3pro and moved up to a fotoman 617 late last year. I'm now a truly corrupted film convert. Hoping to start selling more prints soon to start covering costs a little :Paranoid:
