Hi everyone. I'm Thomas and I'm a semi professional photographer from Dublin, Ireland. Why semi-pro? My full time job is as a graphic designer and animator but I also do part time work as a photographer. My real passion is Photography and I am to do that more and more. Two years ago I left my full time job as a designer so I could split my time more between design and photography. I love shooting with compacts as well as my SLRs. I originally had a Panasonic LX2 but I recently got a Panasonic GF1 and I absolutely love it. It's one of my favorite all time cameras. I've been reading serious compacts for years and I'm happy to finally join the community!
