Hi from Chicago! (north suburbs)

My name is Jeremy. My first SLR was a Pentax K1000 SE in about 1995. I worked at camera stores and went to school (electronics engineering technology) until 1997.

These days, I'm shooting Pentax (Q7, MX-1) and Panasonic. (Lumix FZ1000)

I'm not too "serious" as you can tell by my fleet; I haven't got much time due to family and work sucking up most of it. So I mostly just try to take better family pictures than the average person. I favor B&W pretty heavily these days for people pictures.

I wish Pentax would make something on the order of the FZ1000 and update the MX-1, but it seems they spent their whole R&D budget on the K-1.

I look forward to meeting you all.

If anyone local wants to meet up (even downtown) for tea and maybe some street shooting, drop me a line!

Welcome from Dundee!

If you're interested we'll probably be doing some more "bee walks" in a couple of the prairie parks in the area this summer. Join the Native Bee Awareness Initiative on Facebook and you'll see when we do these.
