First time post, a small introduction :)

Hi everyone!
After happily lurking for a couple of years I finally decided to sign up.

This forum with it's amazing users provided me with lots and lots of valuable info and I hope to be able to give back a little, although I have my doubts lol!

I'm a freelance graphic artist turned photographer (only recently) up in Canada, Montreal area,
specializing in portraiture, with a slightly compulsive need to hunt down and purchase vintage (manual) lenses.
The collection is growing steadily and to my defence I actually USE them for my work.. Well, some of them alright

I'm now on a mission to get some good old UV an RE Topcor lenses to work on my K3 & K1, which unfortunately seems to be much more complicated (to me) then I hoped for!

Once I have my new (photography) website ready I will add it to my info and hope you'll be interested to have a look and chat,
till then, thanks for having me and happy clickin' !!


Ps. Oh jolly! I see photos may be uploaded here, so I've attached a few! Ignore the watermark, it's not always the same cause I've been having trouble making up my mind regarding my freelance name and logo etc (branding oneself is so much more difficult than working for a client!)

Welcome. This site sells a Pentax K-1 eBook Manual. It is very well written. You will probably know most of the stuff, but the writer who appears to be from Montreal is very thorough. It's a worthwhile investment. IMHO.
