I thought I'd better introduce myself as I've just added my contribution to this month's competition entries, and have been registered without activity for too long!
I live and work in the UK where I spent ten or so years running my own ad agency and design studio before specialising in 3D CGI and digital imaging in the mid to late nineties.
My main line of work is creating 3D and photo based digital illustrations for advertising and marketing use. I'm also an Adobe Certified Instructor for Photoshop and Illustrator and spend a proportion of my time delivering commercial training. I also have a decent level of photographic experience.
Surprisingly little of my work involves 'people retouching' so I've really benefited from the shared knowledge of the people on this board, for which I'm really greatful.
I'll be happy to contribute where I can.
