I have been lurking here for a while, like a lot of new posters, I suppose. I have been shooting for two years. I love photography. It is my developing avenue of artistic expression. I returned from Iraq about two weeks ago. While I continued to shoot there my opportunities were limited. I shoot on a tight budget. I am a working father of five and a full time college student about half-way to my BA. I live in New Hampshire, USA. If you live in NH or VT, send me an email! BTW, I grew up mostly in California.
