Hello from California

Hi, my name is Brian and I am located in San Diego, CA. Grew up here and I am lucky to be back working in my hometown. Photography started as a hobby (as I am sure it was for everyone), but has grown into a passion.

I have jumped from Canon film bodies, to early adoption of the Canon rebel series. Moved to full frame with a Canon 5dmkII and last year sold all of my Canon gear for a Sony a7r. My decision to move to the Sony system was mostly due to a new found interest in printing and the larger sensor size was an amazing jump in resolution from the 5dmkII. After about a year with a Sony, and even though I loved that camera, I had an opportunity to jump into a used Pentax 645z. This is my first Pentax camera and needless to say, I am really enjoying the transition to medium format.

My interests are primarily landscape. I have a passion for traveling/hiking/adventures and photography has become an awesome vehicle to share these experiences and meet like-minded individuals. I also do some work with events in the action/sports world and I would love to get into portraiture.

I look forward to learning from fellow Pentax users and sharing my experiences and photos!

Welcome. If you feel like coming up to the LA area we will be having a meetup this month.

Most of us use K bodies not MF so not sure if we will be able to provide any guidance.

I'll have to see what I have going on that weekend. If I am free I'd love to drive up for the meetup. I'll try and RSVP on the thread when the date gets closer. Thanks!
