I am a retired information system analyst and lived in California for almost 27 years. I started serious photography about ten years ago. I had been to the US Open Of Surfing photographing for several years, I stopped going because of my cataract, finally I had surgery on my cataract, make a lots of different and I can see full colors again, I start photographing again with my good sights. I did some glamour shots with models from Glamour International of San Diego, but stop because of my poor eyesight. I hope to learn more by joining Model Mayhem. I also switch my camera system from Canon to Sony. The Canon SLR is just too heavy for me, I bought a Sony NEX-5N and start shooting surfing with very good results, I hope it will be the same with models. I am interest also shooting on the beach with model with a surfboard preferably also actually surfing.
