Welcome to this week's "Member of the Week" post. Every week I will post the name of a member and a link to their profile. This will be our Member of the Week. Go have a look at their profile page and/or portfolio. Enjoy their photos, leave some comments and most of all post one or two of their photos in this thread so others can see them and enjoy them. If you like you can also write a little blurb saying why you enjoy this member's photos.

This week's Member of the Week is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' MAK. And here are a couple of his photos.

What I've noticed, from looking through his pictures on hi profile, is how many beautiful images he has created with many different cameras.

For me, that is the sign of a master.

I have a wonderful book called "The Little Book of Hitchin" for which Marac provided the photography. It is the history of the town of Hitchin (in the UK) and is just delightful! (And my copy is autographed, too!)

He really does wonderful work - he experiments, tries new things, moves into new arenas. Always fun to see his work!

(And he's a nice guy.)

Thank you everyone, this is a bit like a TV program I used to watch called "This is your Life" with Aamon Andrews.

It is very interesting to see what people like and also made me realise how many different cameras I have been through too. I don't change gear to be a snob or anything, 9 times out of 10 when I have swapped my camera gear it is usually to cover a big rent bill or some other debt of life. Hopefully I have arrived at the end of that crap in my life of having no ready cash for situations like that. It has, however, been a wonderful experience to of been able to play with many cameras over the years and yet with my old bent and ageing eyes I have settled on a manual focus system hahaha. My dream is for a PhaseOne and 3 lenses.

I have been a member here many years and I think this is the best community online bar NONE, I will always remain a member here, helping some, annoying some. I always recommend DPC to anyone who asks me "how can I improve my Photography" This place and the people within it have been KEY in my progression through film to digital and learning software tricks and has been a major factor in developing my style (yeh right... style) and I have also met some fabulous people that I now have the pleasure to call FRIENDS.

Thank you from the depths of my heart.

Oh the man is a legend :)

Had the pleasure of shooting with him several times and hopefully will do many more times in the future, him and his wife are wonderful people, always smiling and full of life.
