I purchased my first Pentax, an MV, to go with me in 1981 to Italy on a high school trip, and have used predominantly Pentax equipment ever since. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1986 with a degree in Journalism, but most of my photography education has been won by trial and error. I enjoy the learning process just as much as getting the shot, so I'm sure I'll be a Pentaxian and a student for a long time to come.
