I started to get serious about photography when I went to Argentina for a year to study in 1974. I blew some of my meager savings on a Pentax bridge camera. I bought my first SLR in 1976. It was a Pentax. Since then I have had bursts of enthusiasm for photography as this activity has competed with many other private and professional projects. Now that I'm retired and living in Southern France I have more time to devote to photography and thus I am trying to take my photography to the next level (as they say). Currently I am using a Nikon D5300 usually with my polyvalent Sigma 18-200mm lens.
I have a photography web site http://mikebrileyphotos.com.
