Hi my name is John Hackney and I am an enthusiastic hobbyist.
I started out a few years ago taking photos of my aquariums for posting on forums. I started out with a Kodak z730. A couple of years ago I switched to a SX20IS. This may I upgraded to a T3i and the bug bit hard. I have since upgraded to a 7D in late August.

Hi, my name is Susan Koppel. I live in Reno, Nevada - I am a "retired" aerospace engineer, now working as an animal keeper at a wildlife sanctuary. Also trying to get my photography to generate some revenue, but not trying hard enough to lose it as a passion or a hobby. I've had Canon gear since the Elan-7 film camera, now own a 5DMK3 and 5DMk2 and an assortment of lenses. Happy to be here!

I thought I should introduce myself here, as there doesn't seem to be a specific place. Anyways, I'm John and have been a Canon user for a couple of years now. I use a 7d and a 5d MKII. I'm a Scotsman presently living in Southern Spain, and really should get out and take more pictures.

My name is Rex, and I use a pair of 7D cameras to shoot crime scene/forensic images at work. I wear a badge, and my office is a white Ford Crown Victoria. I upload my images into a proprietary program, as straight-from-the-camera JPEGs, so the challenge is to record good images, as I cannot process them. Most of my images are shot at night, so flash is very important. I use a 580EX II, 580EX, 320EX, and a Nissin Di866 II, sometimes with an ST-E2. My most usful lenses are a 100mm Macro 2.8L and a 10-22mm EF-S. I own all of my equipment.
I shoot occasionally on my own time, using the 7D cameras, or my 5D "Classic" or 40D, with various lenses up to a 400mm 5.6L. The 5D with the 40mm "Pancake" is a particular favorite.
EDIT/Update, August 2018:
I am now retired. At the time I retired, in January 2018, my duty cameras had been updated to a pair of the 7D Mark II. I was still using the same EF 100/2.8L Macro IS, and had added a second one. I had shifted to using an EF 24-105L IS for my on-duty zoom. I had accumulated four 600EX-RT Speedlites, and a Macro Ring Lite. Of course, I own this gear, so it is for personal shooting, too.
I have also added, over time, 1D Mark II N, 5Ds R, 1Ds Mark III, and 5D Mark IV cameras, in that order. Some recently-added favored lenses include my EF 100-400L II IS, EF 35/1/4L II, and an EF 300/2.8L IS, the last of which I acquired pre-owned. Walking-about while shooting in natural areas has been my usual recent photographic activity, frequently using the EF 100-400L II IS, with its wonderful ability to capture an image of a bird at the top of the tree, and a wee beastie suddenly appearing underfoot, within seconds of each other. This is a wonderful time to be a photographer.
