    25 posts = time to introduce myself

    I've posted 25 times, so time to introduce myself.

    I've been photographing stuff my whole life and have been lucky enough to remain employed as a photographer since my youth. I was a staff photographer at the Contra Costa Newspapers chain in the San Franciso Bay Area for a very long time and finally left to face the challenges of freelance work in 1998.

    I started working with large format cameras in the early 90's when I started light painting my food photography and other illustration work. 35mm seemed like such a waste for the 5-10 minute exposures I would make with the Hose Master. I've enjoyed the view camera ever since.

    I have volunteered many hours to the Photocentral program in Hayward, California occasionally teaching basic camera and workshops. The program is founded by a pair of very talented landscape photographers Geir and Kate Jordahl. I've enjoyed their friendship and highly recommend the program if you are in the Bay Area.

    I currently live in Toronto, Ontario while my wife is attending university. I am a native of the California Sacramento River Delta, but enjoy living here in Canada and think it is a great country and Toronto is a wonderful city.

    Welcome from the We(s)t Coast, Greg; glad to have you here, Cheers, Uri
    P.S. Wish I lived closer to Dimpflemeier Bakery, Haimishe Bagels, and the Spadina cheese shops sometimes; I miss the pizza with ginger, garlic, and green chillies too.

    Welcome Greg! I took a bus trip that went through Toronto in 1976
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
