    Hello from Florida,

    After visiting this wonderful online community several times I decided to join. What a great bunch of people!!!

    I've been in love with photography since my days as a high school year book photographer in the late 70's early 80's. After HS I attended the Dawson Institute of Photography and graduated 3 yrs later with 1275 hrs under my belt and a degree in Commercial Photography. Since then I've worked for several commercial photographers as an assistant and later branched out on my own. Career changes years later and relocations have made me loose touch with what I truly enjoy doing.

    I hope to be another valued and contributing member of this great community.

    -George

    With the combination of experience and formal education in photography, it sounds as if you can be a real asset to the group.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome,

    A world of photographic knowledge is on tap here and the atmosphere is one of going out of the way to help fellow photographers. You will wear out your computer chair! Get stuck in!

    (don't mind me...I ramble a wee bit):wink:
