Hey all. Gary has kindly accepted my request to an interview and I'm excited to find a little more about this awesome guy. To give you a little heads up. I've known Gary on this forum for quite awhile and his input and comments are always constructive and he's just 'one of those guys who are part of the furniture' so to speak. Members who have been here awhile will certainly remember him. He's got years of experience with photography and some interesting stories to tell, so let's get started. I've never interviewed before so forgive me. Let me ask the questions until the interview is finished and then you are welcome to ask any questions you have. I live in Australia and Gary lives somewhere in America so keep in mind we have different time zones. He'll probably be replyng while I'm pushing zzzzz's 1. Gary, can you please tell us a little about your growing up years, about your family, where you lived and what your dad did to earn a crust? 2. How did you come to have your first camera. And what was it. Can you remember what you liked to photograph when you first walked around with this new toy?
