Greetings from Hertfordshire
« on: May 30, 2011, 12:27:46 PM »
Hi,

judging by some of the names I've seen already, a few people will know me from the DC Mag forums.

I'm Garry from North Herts.

When I'm feeling pretentious I like to describe myself as a semi-pro photographer, when I'm not, I'm just a super-keen amateur.  I am interested in all kinds of photography but mainly do sports. I do league football for a sports agency selling to the national press on Saturdays when I'm not in my normal job and most Sundays all year round I do American Football (for which I don't get paid).

I also do occasional weddings & portrait sessions, family & kids mainly.

Recreationally, I like aviation & motorsport, historical re-enaction, people, macro, wildlife, not so keen on landscape stuff though do try my hand from time to time. I'm trying to get into the Strobist stuff too with off-camera flashes. Basically, pretty much anything you can take a photo of.

I'm secretary of our local camera club (which celebrates it's 90th anniversary next year & I swear still has some founder members) and am pushing to bring it into the 21st century & bring the average age range down a bit.

That's me, nice to meet you!

Hi Garry, good to see you made it over here.  Welcome to CC.  :tup:

Look forward to seeing some of your images, I especially loved those water drop macros you did over at PR, they are outstanding.

Need any help finding your way around here, just shout.  ;)

No, it's referring to all the PR people who have joined here in the last couple of months.  :2funny:
