Hello, I'm a long time lover of photography! I took my first photography course when I was about 12 years old and have been shooting since! In the 25 years since I've been mostly an amateur photographer, but in the last two years I've been talked into pursuing photography as a career. Now my wife and I run a successful photography business in addition to our "day jobs!" We are nearing the point of getting enough business for one of us to quit and do photography full time, and hopefully both of us will be shooting full time in the next 2 years! Been looking for a forum like this to share my love of photography!
