    8x10 - hello from Berlin, Germany

    Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking on this forum for quite some time now, even prior to my proper registration. Thanks to everyone for all the endless knowledge that has amassed here - I have learned countless things from this site and made most of my equipment choices based on what I read here.

    So it's time to introduce myself.

    I am 27, live in Berlin and work for a very large US IT Corporation as a consultant. I would love to be a fulltime photographer, but I am afraid that my passion would probably not pay my rent.

    My main theme is everything urban, mostly at night and always on location. I love to scout new cities and find the great spots. My latest experiences have been in Tokyo, Hong Kong and New York.

    My equipment consists of a Sinar P2 8x10, a Schneider 300mm f/5.6 and a Schneider 150mm f/5.6 - my next lens will be the 600/800mm Schneider Convertible, If I can save the money.

    I also am the lucky owner of a Heidelberg Primescan D 8200 drumscanner, sniped it dead cheap on eBay and still can't believe I really own it - probably the best drum scanner in the world.

    So I look forward to good discussions,
    and if you like, check my portfolio or my blog!
