Hello fellow photographers and others who visit this page.
My brother (Bob) gave me his SLR when he had an accident and was in the hospital. Thanks to him I became interested in photography. I studied photography at university, yet I feel I have learnt more by trial and error( shoot, shoot and shoot again).

In past, I have mainly shot landscape/scenery and have hundreds if not thousands of slides waiting to be scanned.
Recently, I have been shooting almost anything. Thanks to digital, you can shoot thousands of pictures and just toss them if you're not satisfied with the results. The investment (developing) I have in Fuji Velvia is quite substantial.
Still love the color of Velvia, but times r a changin.

At present, Im living in Tokyo with my wife Kimie, son, 3 year old daughter and 6 cats. We love cats and animals in general. We love vacationing in tropical places like Okinawa and Hawaii; thus the large number of scenic slides in my closet. One of my goals is to get some of them in a stock photo agency.

In my freetime, I love snowboarding and anything to do with water. Im somewhat of a powder freak always looking to leave fresh tracks in snorkle deep snow.

As for equipment, I started with a Canon AE-1 and currently have an EOS 1, Canon PowerShot Pro 1 and a dead Panasonic Lumix DMC-F1S.

Thanks for taking the time to read this bio. Eric
