Newb from Vancouver Island

Hello all, I have been a casual photographer enthusiast for a few years but recently have started to seriously invest my time and money. Editing wise I have been mostly influenced by the likes of Dave Hill, Joey L, Dragan among others. I look forward to bettering myself through this site and as many other good sources as possible.

Welcome to RetouchPro, Dick!! You'll find other fans of Dave Hill (some fans of Joey also, I think, but don't think he has his own thread) if you haven't already noticed.

Enjoy looking around and practicing your work enthusiastically. I think you'll find people willing to share their info and opportunities for you to share your ideas as well.

I've seen many photos of the beautiful area around Vancouver Island - make great background shots too, I imagine.

Re: Newb from Vancouver Island

There are fantastic backdrops around just about every corner here. From dark grungy alleys covered in street art to beautiful 800 year moss covered forests this place constantly amazes me. I'm really looking forward to taking advantage it far more in the upcoming months!

Thank you for the warm welcome!

Just another vote for Vancouver Island being a great place to shoot. I've on the Island for over 20 years, and I'm still finding amazing new areas to take pictures!

Here's a couple pics, I'm not sure if they'll post properly since I haven't posted a here. The size is tiny so they're pixelated... if you want to see some larger copies my site is here
