Oldbie from Milton Keynes

Seeing as we've recently had a newbie (Veronique) from Milton Keynes here's an oldbie. Oldbie because of my age and the length of time I've been taking photos! Not that I've improved much over the years.
I regard myself as a part time freelance.

I provide illustrated travel and special features for camping, caravan and motorhome magazines. I guess I've had around 500 features published but that is over 17 years and includes short campsite reviews. It basically pays for my trips and photography. A self financing hobby you might say. Because of this much of my photography has been of the picture postcard variety.

Hopefully I'll be inspired to be more creative by some of the outstanding photographers on this site.
I also used to contribute to a picture library but gave that up because it was too time consuming.

Before moving to to digital I used Bronica and Canon equipment but now have an Olympus E500 and I'm thinking about the E620 for my next purchase.

Best wishes,

True I joined in 2007 but not really had time to participate. Hope that's changed a little now and I have uploaded several images over the last week.
