    Biography: I'm a South African currently living in the Netherlands.

    I got my first camera from my uncle (who was a journalist) when I was about 10 years old - an old Kodak Retina rangefinder - it didn't even have an integrated light meter but I loved it. Took a high-school photography course (with dark room sessions) using a Nikon FM2, and owned a Pentax Zoom90WR for some years. I finally went digital in 2001 with the great little Canon S45. After extensively using a friend's Nikon D70 while backpacking through SE Asia in 2005, I fell in love with it and bought myself a Nikon D80 in 2006.

    I'm currently working towards a PhD in medical image processing and visualisation, but also have many hobbies and interests which distract me - among them this site! :-P

    Things I hope to achieve on dpchallenge:
    * score above 6.0
    * score above 7.0
    * top 10 finish
    * earn a ribbon
    * earn a blue ribbon!
    * achieve an average score > 6.0

    I would like to consistently score above my average - i.e. to learn from all the great photographers here, and to improve my own work. But lately this hasn't been going so well... I spend too little time taking creative photographs and end but not delivering the goods. But my intention remains!
