As of now (October 2013), I've been on Flickr for over four years and am only now writing about myself, and about my photography.
I've been interested in photography since I was a teenager and took a photography class in high school. I bought a Pentax K-1000 fully-manual SLR and learned the basics of aperture, exposure, and working in the darkroom. My camera got stolen in college, and I didn't return seriously to photography again for about 20 years, when I bought a Canon Rebel DSLR in about 2007.
I joined Flickr in 2009, originally just as an easy way of sharing photos with family and friends. And then something interesting happened: I decided not to make one set of photos private, people started to comment, and I was hooked.
Flickr has been wonderful for my photography. As I've shared my own work and looked at yours, I think I've become a better photographer. I'm always trying to get better, so I welcome comments and criticism.
I work hard, most days well into the evening, and often travel for work, so I don't visit Flickr daily, and I sometimes am away for weeks. When I can, I try to visit as many of my contacts as possible. I certainly value all your comments and support over the years.
