Hi, Nancy here. Started out as a mus ic major @ Aaron Copeland School of Music, left to pursue design. Started at Parsons School of Design, met a boy (photo major) he took the pic of me at the studio at school. I actually left Parsons to go to Pratt, where I graduated in ID (Industrial Design). I do freelance work now. Also used to live in California where I played a lot of tennis.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Music: I grew up on folk music. My father sang with Buffy Saint Marie, and he taught me how to sing and how to sing harmony. So I grew up with Dylan, The Weavers, Doc Watson, Rooftop Singers, Smother's Brothers etc. Got into hard rock in my teens, formed some bands. Also played flute in the orchestra in HS and college. I play that Gibson songwriter deluxe that I photographed in the guitar post. I also have my father's Guild but I don't play it for sentimental reasons. I love singing and playing acoustic stuff, and I do own an electric but I am not much of an electric player.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Got into photography b/c I hung out with the photo majors at school, loved playing around in studio, and I am very mathematically minded for a female. I think my photography lacks some soul, traded it for all of the techy stuff. I read Ansel Adams series: The Camera, The Negative, and The Print for fun and got into b&w developing, and some color printing which I hated. I have experience with small medium and large format cameras. I set up my own studio with a light table that I built with my ex (broken now) and some strobes which I got from an old photography friend of my parents. Used it primarily to take photos of my work (and my cats when I got bored!). I love photographing people and children for fun. Also took some film classes (@ The New School -Parsons is a subdivision of the New School) made a couple of documentaries - one about the Woodstock reunions the 19th -25th. Film always seemed too hard, it is hard enough getting one perfect still, let alone 30 frames per second! So, I stick to photography.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I have nieces and nephews, a brother, three cats and I co-own two ferrets (even though it is technically illegal to own them in NYC thanks to Guiliani) with my bro.

My name is Bob and I am reletively new to posting on this forum, but have been reading it and learning from it for quite a while. I am 44, married since 1982 with eight children. Our oldest is twenty, youngest six. Our oldest got married last spring, and our next oldest started college this fall. My wife home schools our children through twelth grade.

I have both a FZ 10 and a FZ 20. I am teaching my kids what little I know about photgraphy. It works out pretty well having two cameras so similar.

I am self-employed with an office cleaning business and a carpet cleaning business. I have a BA degree in Bible, with a Biblical Greek minor. I play drums for the worship band at our church. Have been drumming since six years old. Music is my first hobby, photography, especially of birds, is my second. I have a favorite bird blind I go to as often as my schedule allows. I find bird photogrphy to berelaxing. That is where I also bring my kids and teach them on the FZ 10.

I love all types of music and enjoy watching any well done movie with my wife. We have quite a collection of movies.

I am greatly benefitting from allof your photographyknowledge and experience, and have enjoyed getting to know you some, too.

Here is a photo from 2002 of my family.
