Well to make a long story short, I was never interested in Photography until the digital age emerged. Being able to see and process images instantly was a great advance in the world of Photography, and sparked a huge interest in me. I was already big into computers so digital Photography fit perfectly into my computer hobby.

I started out in November 2002 with a Fuji 2.0 mega pixel camera that took get pictures, but after two years playing with that, I moved into a Canon S1 IS which really pointed me in the direction I am now. So in 2005 I made the jump into Canon's Digital Rebel SLR line and purchased the Rebel XT, which totally hooked me on SLR Cameras!! I liked the XT so much that in 2007 I purchased the Rebel XTi, which again has been a super body. In 2008 I moved up into the Canon 40D and also invested in a 500mm F4L IS super Telephoto lens to get the most out of shooting wildlife, and so far the 40D combo and 500mm Lens have been great!!

I live in Belleville Ontario Canada, and I am single with two girls, I went through an unfortunate divorce back in 2001 and since then I have concentrated more on my photography than getting myself "back into the game!!" LOL!! Due to my addiction to the photography world, I am going to have to find someone who enjoys this hobby as much as I do...

This is a great site with a lot of great people, and I have learned a lot since I have been here... I hope you do too.. Enjoy Derek D Dafoe
