I'm Alan - a contract programmer for a large company by day and a photographer the rest of the time. I've been doing photography off and on for some 44 years, now. It's always been a hobby, though it's gotten pretty serious over the last four or five years.
I'm based in Houston, Texas, but we try to get in a trip every year or so. A lot of these pictures are of the travels, but Houston is a large city and there is always something going on around here that calls for the camera to come out as well.
The best part of a large city is a good camera club. I’m a member of the Northwest Houston Photo Club and hanging around with these guys is what has kept my photo skills advancing. We get together every couple of weeks for a shoot, a lecture or a competition and this constant practice makes the difference.
It was difficult to switch from the film cameras to the DSLRs, but it's proven worth it. I've gone through the D200, D300, D7000 and am now on the D7100. The power of each new level is astounding. When it’s combined with Photoshop and HDR tools and such, the results are better than the work of high end professional studios of 15 years ago. Technology has made professional photographers of us all.
