    I am now 51. Started with a Foth Derby when about 10 then 35mm when the family came along. I started collecting old cameras when about 35. This led to LF once I tried using the big old cameras and realised that 90 year old gear can knock spots off modern 35mm. So old is not all bad. Keep taking the tablets.

    34, and just started LF with second hand Wista VX, after 15 years with 35mm and MF. I'm in UK too, btw.

    I'm 43, which is not only a prime number, but quite young for a Galapagos tortoise.

    how old are we?

    I am in Toronto area. I am 48, I have been doing large format from age 19 in university, I have been shooting 35 and medium format since age 12. I got to 8x10 last year. I was a pro doing fashion in Toronto for about 5 years in the early eighties. I got tired of competing against the reyerson grads who slept in their studios and the ad amanagres who would sign off on he polariods and then sill pay slowly or had their partner complain. So I decided that I would become a professional amatuer, That menas I refuse to do photography for money. I don't get into juried competetions either because then I end up truing to shhot to please the judges. I had to get a really good job to afford this but it has frred up the way I thimk and has allowed me to explore the fun of being creative.

    36. First stepped into a darkroom around age 9 and have been doing photography ever since. Tried LF a few times in the past, but I've only been doing it seriously for around 3-4 years.

    I'm 64 and have been shooting LF, along with other formats, for 45 years, both as professional and amatuer. I current shoot 98 percent of work with LF. I spilled Viagra on my tripod and cannot get the legs to collapse for transport. It's good to see we have a lot of members in the 30-40 year-old-range, and even a few dedicated members in their 20s. Seems one takes to LF after they get a little older and more experienced and really know what quality means.
