South Africa
Good day to everyone.

I live and work in Pretoria, South Africa. I am married and have one daughter (second child, apparently a boy, is on it's way, expected early April 2006). My occupation is (for all my sins) Mechanical Engineering, specifically specializing in water supply.

I am a very keen amateur photographer and my love for photography is growing daily. I love collecting older cameras and equipment (from the 70's and 80's) which I believe is better in every respect than the autofocus, bells and whistles wizardry of nowadays.

I love reading the books of Freeman Patterson who is teaching me to "see" and encouraging me to experiment.

Although I own and like to use a digital camera (it also suits the budget) I prefer film to digital. Call me old fashioned if you like...

My favourite cameras (from my collection) are the Olympus XA which I can carry in my shirt pocket and of course my trusted old Canon which is 22 years old and still doing it's work. Recently started collecting Nikon and I just bought an excellent (mint condition) FM2n and a Sigma 90mm macro. Watch out...
