I've been taking photos for about ten years (since 2000ish). Photography is a nice hobby because it becomes part af your lifestyle.

I have a Canon 5DmkII with Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM and Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, and Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

I like these lenses because they are so different to what the human eye can do. The first is very wide and the second lets through an insane amount of light.

I subscribe to Jonathan's rule of cameras: buy the most expensive Canon camera you can afford and you will be happy with it.

I sometimes take photos with my little waterproof Canon Powershot D10.

I publish between 10k and 15k photos per year.

My photo workflow currently involves Aperture 3 and Album (perl).
