Hey everyone.  Been a member for a couple weeks but I just found this thread.  I'm a 27 year old unmarried but not single guy in the United States Navy.  I'm new to photography (in my opinion) but very pationate.  That's what attracted me to this site.  The talent and passion here compaired to the number of members is unmatched.  Quality over quantity.  I'm always trying to better myself and always feel behind where I want to be no matter how much I improve.  I hate that feeling but I guess it's a good thing.  Gotta have something to shoot for to keep yourself going.  After this tour in the navy i'd like to go to Western Washington University to learn a thing or two and hopefully become a full time pro.  I love to travel the world (reason for joining the navy).  I've been all over Europe, Japan, South Africa, and the Middle East.  I can't say I loved every minute of it but I wouldn't trade it for anything.  I could say a lot more here but I think half of what I've said will be reiterated after I answer the questions below.  I hope to learn a lot (and perhaps teach a little) here.

Q: What do/did you do for a living?

A: Avionics Technician (USN).

A: Olympus uhhh... M/A/S 10x zoom point and shoot of some sort.  Loved it.

Q: What type of photography interests you the most?

A: Any really.

Q: Who's photography do you admire the most? (famous photographers)

A: Ansel Adams because he more than anyone else drew me to photography.

Q: What's your ambition as a photographer?

A: To be better than I was yesterday and eventually own a studio.

Q: What irritates you most about other photographers?

A: The crusty old ones that think digital is fake and computers are scary.  B&W film is the only way to take a picture type people.

Q: What's your next favourite pastime?
