...hello, another newbie here - just stumbled across this forum a couple of weeks ago
I'm not a photographer as such but use a camera to illustrate my work as a travel writer
Some years ago I took 4 years off work to study photography full time at several technical institutes - reason being it began to seem that everyone with a backpack and a laptop thought they were a 'travel writer'
I needed an edge!
These days i have too much time on my hands (hence my relatively high ranking here, despite being a newbie)
Recovering from an injury, i'm on enforced leave and R&R, wintering over in the South Pacific and forums such as this are keeping me sane
I expect (hope!) to be back on the road come November ... so there's plenty of time still left for me to annoy y'all
