I've been lurking for quite a while and thought it was time to jump in

Names Mark. I've been a teacher for 4 years after realizing a degree in creative writing was not going to put food on the table, at least not right away. Then there was anthropology Grad school which is a different story. Now teaching and I love it, fool that I am. SOme where in there My dad decided I needed to take pictures with my own camera not his. I have 35mm, MF(I love my Russian MF system) a 4x5 Busch Pressman and a 5x7 2d that I rebuilt over a number of years. And a few other cameras tucked away in there somewhere

I live in northern AZ. and have lived here for a great portion of my 33 years.
