    Greetings from Nairobi, Kenya!

    Hi all!

    My name's Mark, and like so many of you, I am new to LF photography. Also like many of you, I have been a photographer for some time in the digital world. Currently I am a photographer for a Nairobi, Kenya based media production company. Although I am American (Montana), I have been living in Africa for 6 years now, and am loving the joys and challenges of this profession on this continent.

    Looking forward to picking the brains of all you LF photography gurus out there!

    Peace,
    M.E.

    Welcome indeed! This is a superb place to find answers to questions and see a great deal of excellent work.

    Have a look here at this delightful graphic that was posted here long ago by Mark Owen Sawyer.

    Karibu mzungu! I was based in Nairobbery for 6 months in 1994 and a basic knowledge of Swahili is still present

    Welcome aboard!
    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.

    Years ago, when I was young, I was a member of the St. Louis Camera Cub. It was a huge club and there was a fellow member who shot African Wildlife for National Geographic. He used a Hasselblad and his images were simply amazing! I can just imagine someone shooting large format.

    Welcome to the forum. We are glad to have you!
