I got my first real camera in November of 2009 so I am relatively new at this. I've enjoyed photography since my first high school class where we got to take some B&W on film and develop it, however never got around to really exploring it. While in college I even worked in a photolab to pay the bills. It seems photography was around me always.
My career path in life has mostly taken a technical direction however. I am a web developer by trade, although my job entails significantly more programming than design work.
Photography is just a hobby and probably will always stay that way. I am 100% self taught, however I am considering maybe taking some classes in the future.
I've been a lurker on flickr for many years but even after using it for only a couple months, I can see I'll be here a long time to come.
