    Hi guys, im James,
    i live in Traralgon, about 2hrs south east of Melbourne.
    i shoot 35mm and medium format. i think i like buying camera gear as much or more than shooting it.. hah
    currently own a Pentax K5, Pentax LX, Minolta HiMatic 7sII, Leica M3, Mamiya RB67 and a Yashicamat 124. and then theres all the lenses and accessories to go with them..
    im currently preparing for my first group show[with 3 other friends/artists] next month, which is rather exciting and scary.

    Welcome to the forum. I used to live in Geelong, but moved to cooler climes.

    Another cheerful wave from another bit of country Victoria — Geelong.
    Traralgon is BIG. I've got myself lost and disoriented many times on what I thought was a simple drive back from Walhalla!
    Group shows are the way to go now and should be a crowd puller. Good luck!
