    Anyone from Central California?

    I'm from Fresno, California and I've met other Californians here, but most come from SoCal, or the Bay area. I was wondering if anyone else came from Central California, more so the Central Valley in cities like Fresno, Bakersfield, Visalia est.

    It'd be nice to know I'm not the only one.

    Hi, I'm from the small town of Reedley, which is south of Fresno on the Kings River. I used to live on the coast, but am now getting used to the Central Valley. I find it quite hot here!

    Hi Alisha,
    Bakersfield here. I think I have met Jon once or twice at one of Per Volquartz's get togethers. I like the fact that we are central. There is good access to the best of California and the West.
    Welcome

    I'm in San Luis Obispo. Would be nice to shoot some film with others. If any of you Central Valley folks are getting too hot and wanna cool down on a weekend, come out to the coast, eh? Let's go to Montana de Oro, or Guadalupe dunes, or Pt. Sal, San Simeon or ... further north. ? Ideas.. its beautiful coast around here!
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).

    Hi Central Valley. I live between Merced and Turlock. I teach photography at Merced High School where i still hang on to film cameras and darkroom. I personally use LF film, 4x5, but mainly 8x10.

    I lived in Bakersfield for almost ten years. But then I escaped.

    Actually, I was living in B-Town when I first got interested in photography. Still have fond memories and lots of nice images from when I'd go roaming around taking pics. You live close to some beautiful scenic areas.

    Best,

    Michael

    I'm from Fresno. I'm taking a black & white photography class at Fresno City College. I'm taking pictures on the side too.
