    Biography: Started shooting about 5 years ago for family - I not really progressed in to the "real" world yet but still continue to shoot for friends/family. This year I've learnt a truckload from other great teachers in the field, I highly recommend CreativeLive workshops (Zack Arias is #1). My goal is to drive enough income from my hobby to have it self sustain upgrades and toys :).

    I'm also look to expand my "shots in the park" to more studio stuff, lighting, white seemless etc...

    Biography:
    After recently graduating from university, I was in need of a new hobby to fill in some extra time. I've always wanted to get into photography, ever since my brother purchased his d5000 a couple of years ago. I was envious of him, and my only constraint, at the time, was funds. Now that I've graduated, and have a full time job, I've invested a small fortune on what would seem as my new hobby. I like to shoot landscapes, and the occasional bird. I've been meaning to get into macro photography (specifically insects) after seeing some threads from various OCAU members, but I think I have to calm down on my expenditure...for now. Anyhoo, as with most people, I'm always up for learning new techniques/ideas/ways to better improve my photography, so feel free to CC my work :)

    Biography
    Had my own camera since I was a kid but really took up photography as a serious hobby 3-4 years ago. My first dslr was a Canon 1000D and earlier this year I moved up to a 60D. Had a few photos published in places and now I'm starting to pick up some paid jobs from people who like my pictures so hopefully I can pay off what I've spent on gear. I suppose that means I'm not completely horrible haha.

    Biography: Long time lurker here but don't post too often. Been playing on and off with my DSLR for a few years now. Nothing serious, just heading out for some photos when I have some spare time and the weather is nice. Mostly interested in landscapes and sports (although haven't really shot this much). Very much enjoy shooting film but not overly keen on the costs involved in colour so it's mostly B+W.
