Hello, I'm Ian.
Thanks for taking the trouble to learn a little more about me.
I've had a camera for as long as I can remember. It was a Kodak 110 first I think. Then, when I was about 19, a friend was visiting Hong Kong and I asked him to bring me a Pentax SFXn, my first decent SLR - although still film in those days.
I still had that camera up until 2006 when I booked to go on holiday in Canada. It was to be a special trip and so I'd need a 'proper' camera so I got a Canon 350d.
For my 40th (I know, I don't look that old), my wife bought me a 50d and once again, my photography went up a notch. I've recently upgraded to a full-frame 5d mark 2 and actually... erm, 'exclaimed out loud' when I saw results from it on the computer for the first time.
For the last couple of years I've also been shooting more and more film and have ammassed quite a collection of analogue cameras; from classics like a Nikon F through to Holgas, Lomography toys and even a camera made from a shoe box.
I've shot things in the last 12 month or so just for the challenge. I have no real interest in the International Space Station for example, but getting decent pictures of it was a challenge, and that what I enjoy (they're here by the way - www.flickr.com/search/?w=78164632@N00&q=iss). There is so much to photography, so many things to learn and I'll take every opportunity to go and shoot with someone that really does know what they're doing.

I hope you find something of interest in my Photostream. If you do, leave me a comment and make my day.

One last thing, my pictures are copyright protected. However, if you want to use one for a purpose that isn't going to make you rich, drop me a line and I'll almost certainly let you use it for nowt.

I also tweet, write a blog and do the Facebook thing and you can find all those links here: about.me/placidcasual
