Hi to you all. My name is Charlie Ellis. I am a retired Orthopedic Surgeon from America who has worked as a professional photographer for the last 5 years. I am from Lajitas, Texas, but now live in Siracha, Thailand. I specialize in flower photography, and there are several thousand varieties here which bloom all year.

As a hobby photographer since adolescence, I have used film formats from 4x5", 6x7, 6x6, to 35 mm. My first Pentax was the 6x7. I used Canon 35 mms, and used to do skydiving photography as well as Landscapes. I switched to Pentax DSLR's because I liked the substantial build and water resistance, plus I could use MF lenses.

I presently use the K-20 and will soon upgrade to the K-5. I have about 15 lenses, mixed MF, film AF and Digital. As much as I liked Canons, I will forever use Pentax. Their ruggedness, superb colors, and versatility are unbeatable.

My user name is bedouin1990, named such in honor of the Saudi Arabian nomads I lived with for 3 months during Operation Desert Storm.
