I have been interested in photography from an early age. I bought my first camera at about age 13, it was a Brownie 127 of which I was extremely proud. I have never owned what I would call an expensive camera. My first SLR was a Zenith and I managed to afford some additional lenses. My first reasonable camera was a Minolta X700 with which I took many shots of which I am proud.
I currently use a Sony a550 which I have owned for several years.
