I retired in 2007 when I was 71 years old. Before I retired I was a mechanical engineer. I attended college in St. Petersburg, Russia (Formerly Leningrad, Soviet Union). Photography is my major hobby for my whole life.
I started my photography when I was about 8 years old when I was in elementary school. Because my father owned a photography studio I had a chance to learn photo development skill in a darkroom from my early childhood. I continued my photo hobby in high school, college and now. After I retired I got more time to do my favorite photography. I had a lot of photo trips with my friends.
I use a Camera Nikon D800, D7000, Sony A7R, NEX 6.
