Just joined today

Hi. I am in Herefordshire and heard about this forum from a member of Talk Photography. I have had an Olympus camera since 2016 and have added a few lenses since then. I have used Canon for a long time but am finding having the two systems side by side a good fit for me at the moment. My photo interests are quite varied and include sport, wildlife and coastal photography. I was very chuffed in June last year to achieve my ARPS [Fine Art].
