Hello All

Introduce yourself and tell us a bit about you

Hello All

Postby lopicma » Fri Feb 21, 2014 1:21 pm

My name is Mark Lopiccola and I am Truck Driver working a camera on the weekends.

My formal education is in Forestry and Ecology, both from Michigan Technological University. Every weekend is a vacation for me and twice a year I get a week off and explore my photography further. I have lived in Michigan all my life, and after traveling to nearly every state in the union with trucking, I can't find a better place to live... well maybe Arizona... LOL

My main interest in photography are Nature and Wildlife, but I like to throw in a Landscape now and then.

What I hope to gain from this forum is a place to post my bird sightings and a some insights as to where to find my next subject. I look forward to my next outing and hope to see out there as well.

Happy Birding,
Mark Lopiccola

Welcome, welcome, welcome! This is SUCH a great group here. We have all levels of birders and photographers from the beginners to the vastly experienced! Some of us are back-yarders, and some like to make extended field trips or even a walk on their own patch!

We all just adore seeing other folks' photos, and hearing about any sightings. We share information on anything rare or odd that comes along. We aren't a large group, but what we have, we have in spades! You'll love it!

Welcome to the group Mark, you will find good people and things here. When were you going to school at MTU? We had family members going to school there from 2005 to 2013, one of them in Forest Ecology getting her Masters there in 2013.
