Introduce myself. Hello, I’m new here, Ken “Art Roflmao” told me about it. I am in the Phx area now, from the Seattle area. I am paralyzed from the shoulders down, I can’t use my hands. I’ve been doing some photography. I do a lot of double exposures, I do them all in-camera, no computer. I love Wildlife, but it’s hard to get close in a power wheelchair. I hope you guys like some of my photos… I'm still pretty new... Greg

You know Art??

And you actually admit to it??

Brave person! Welcome! Well... Even if you know Art, welcome anyway.

(Someone used to be in charge of welcome baskets, but the lazy bum stopped doing it.)

Looking forward to seeing your work!

Hey Greg! Glad you made it over here. I'm mainly here for the LOLz, but there are a lot of serious photographers and all around awesome people here (in spite of what they say about me).

To the gang, Greg failed to mention that he has won some awards in the AZ Nature Photo Contest (3 category awards, 1st, 1st, 3rd and the Overall #1 People’s Choice Award) and has been featured on the news there. You can learn more about that here: http://www.azfamily.com/story/35537018/paralyzed-photographer-from-chandler-wins-awards

I'm sure he'll have fun here, make new friends and advance his already impressive skills.

I don't have time to dig up the links but usually we have some specific forum post primers to help new members get familiar with this place, it's rules and it's quirkiness. If someone can post some of those for Greg, that's be great. Otherwise I'll dig them up later.

*I asked that the thread be moved to the Welcome Center also.

Oh yeah, I've never met Greg. He used to live in my town, but moved to Arizona and I just "met" him on facebook today when I read his story and suggested he join DPC.
So he has no information that can be used against me. :P

Hi Greg!

Welcome home!

Don't bother listening to all of the weird stories about Ken.

They're all true.

But... we love him anyway! :D

In honor of Ken... :D

I've moved this to the "Welcome Center", Greg. Can't wait to see some of your pictures. I am, naturally, curious about what sort of a rig you have considering your physical situation. I'm deaf myself, so I get to be nosy :-)
