    Hi from Tristan

    Hi everyone,

    Its really exciting to have discovered this site.
    Briefly looking around it, I've seen plenty to enjoy.

    I'm a photographer in Jo'burg, South Africa, and have been operating full time since the beginning of 2003. I studied photography at Pretoria Technikon and asssisted several commercial photographers in Johannesburg.

    I use my Hasselblad and Linhof Technika mostly, both for work and play.
    With your help, I'll be using them for a long time still!
    I'm afraid I just don't get a kick out of the whole digital thing.
    I like to work with cameras, film and light. Not computers!

    Cheers, Tristan McLaren

    Hello Tristan!
    Welcome to the APUG community. You have indeed found a site that still values the traditional photographic processes. We are, generally, pretty good folks!

    Cheers,
    Geary

    Hi Tristan, by any chance were you named after a crusty old British sailor, last name of Jones? He was one of my favorite writers about sailing, and a remarkable man. Welcome aboard. tim

    Welcome, Tristan!
    As you have probably discovered by now, this is a very friendly and open place to be! I look forward to seeing photos of your part of the world, so please use the computer just a wee bit to get them scanned in for us! haha
