Hello All!
I'm John an amateur/intermediate photographer and collector of old cameras.

I treat photography very much as a peripheral hobby, using my cameras primarily when I have a unique opportunity. I'm far from being an artist...

I collect a lot of things though, primarily meteorites (which I also sell from a website) and Japanese swords primarily. I have a small vintage and antique camera collection, and honestly my primary goal in joining the forum is my interest in thinning my "vintage camera herd" somewhat. I'd like to put some of my old cameras up for sale here, though I do not know if there is a forum for that in this site.

Regardless, glad to see a thriving camera community present online. Here's a few photos I've taken. Personally I think my strength is in the composition of photos, not necessarily my technique at this point...

Thanks for reading!
Cheers,
John A. Shea, MD

Hey there,
No I just happened to be at the barber shop and the muse hit me. I'm an MD by training but I work in a management capacity for a company that provides scribes for physicians. I just became a Premium Member so I will list somethings for sale eventually.

A few more photos. Not sure I have many that have a file size within the limits of the posting regulations, but may be able to convert some.
