Smile Greetings from North Yorkshire

Hello everyone,

I have only just discovered this group so looking forward to another source for info, tips and inspiration.

I'm a keen amateur photographer and after reaching the limit of what my mobile phone could provide decided it was time I treated myself to a camera. After much research and the internal battle of having to use a credit card for my purchase I settled on the Olympus Em5-Mk2 & 12-40pro kit during one of the cashback promotional offers.

Since my initial purchase in July 2017 I now own the 60mm Macro, 40-150pro with 1.4x tc, 2 tripods, Nisi landscape cpl with 2 ND filters and various other 'essential' items!

A few weeks ago I decided to join a local Camera Club and I believe i'm the only member not using Canon or Nikon. Time to shake things up i reckon

Anyway ... nice to be here and hopefully a chance to meet some people local to me that also shoot with Olympus gear.

Regards
Ivan

Welcome Ivan, I hope you will be showing the camera club a thing or two. Also love to see some of your work. The monthly Challenges provide a good outlet for those images....

Re: Greetings from North Yorkshire

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm based in Pickering and work locally in one of the Secondary schools as their Data Network Manager.
Not getting out as often as i'd like on planned photo trips, I tend to take my camera bag everywhere (even to work) and just shoot whenever the opportunity arises.

Lots of photographic interest around Pickering, especially if you like landscape and nature.

(Sadly no golfballs on the moors nowadays, though I guess they didn't like them being photographed anyway).
