Just a bit about myself, really.
I regard myself as a “experienced Photography practitioner” rather than an “expert”.
Being introduced to photography at a very early age by my father, many years of practical experience as an amateur, a few years as a working events photographer (i.e. “professional”, as it pad my bills, though nowadays only as a part-time activity) and several years active participation (including being President) of an international photography club here in Brussels have lead to me having the honour and experience of meeting and learning from many fantastically creative and knowledgeable people along the years, in photography and in related industries.
I have a scientific / electronic-engineering background (so am certifiably a geek) and have approached photography from this angle, learning about the artistic views from all those people I met along the way.
