Re: Introduce yourself!

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.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello to All! My name is Jim McCann. I've been shooting with Canon gear for...I dunno, perhaps 35 years now. Obviously I've spent most of my life shooting film, but those days are gone now and I'm heavily invested in digital equipment. I've done studio and wedding photography in the past, but no longer. By definition I'm a outdoor photographer and I shoot mainly to illustrate outdoor magazine articles I've written, or I'm also happy to make money selling photos to illustrate other writers work. My photos also grace the pages of my own books. I have two agents, one in NYC and the other in Montana, but the days of making a living selling stock images are pretty much over in my opinion. I live in Alaska, a very target-rich environment for a hunting, fly fishing, wildlife, general outdoor photographer like me. I shoot 7Ds and a 5D Mk III and have lenses ranging from the super wide to the new 500 f4 Mk II super telephoto.

Look forward to communicating with each of you.

Re: Introduce yourself!

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!

Hola from a newbie

Hi folks


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.

Re: Introduce yourself!

[ Edited ]



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.
