Accountant by day (www.glservicesnet.com) I have been interested in photography since my midteens and got more serious about the craft in the early 90's during a trip to Hawaii. Shooting with Minolta film cameras until the digital craze began and for the first few years of digital I took a hiatis from shooting. After taking the digital plunge I got much more serious about my photography work. Continuing to use my Minolta lenses from my film cameras, I purchased early Konica Minolta digital SLRs until Sony took over their Camera division, since then I have purchased several Sony SLRs and SLTs and new Sony, Sigma and Tamron lenses. Even after taking the digital plunge, I still enjoy shooting with film and have purchased several film cameras and still use them quite often. I current have a camera from the 50's, the 70's, the 80's and the 90's. They are also different types; a Rangefinder, A manual 35mm SLR, a full automatic 35mm SLR and medium format (using 120 film). Living in the Northwest Territories and traveling quite often for both work and pleasure, I am rarely seen without a camera bag.
