My Bio
I'm an amateur photographer from a small city in the Carpathian Mountains.
Photography is my main passion, it can be a lot of fun (and a lot of money), it sometimes takes me to some pretty wonderful places (like Sulfur Mountain in Banff, Canada), it's just a shame that i don't have a lot of time and money to dedicate to it.

My Gear:
Canon EOS 550D/T2i DSLR camera
Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens
Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM
Tamron AF SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro (1:1)
Tamron AF SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD (VC=Vibration Compensation=IS)
Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622 Mark II + 4x 2400mAh PowerRex Imedion batteries
Giottos MTL9251B Tripod legs + Giottos MH1301-652 Panoramic Ball Head
(light stand, umbrella, reflector)

Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC Fisheye
Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX-DC HSM
Tamron AF SP 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD IF
Canon 28mm f/1.8 USM
Extension (Macro) Rings

Once i have those i might also want the:
Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 APO DG HSM OS
Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD for traveling

I'm pretty hard on myself and other peoples work so any picture that makes it into my Favorites is truly a work of art. They are masterpieces that wouldn't be out of place in any magazine.

I would love it if you could help me improve my photography with tips, tricks and comments.
I'm also looking to make friends with fellow like-minded photographers.
