I'm born (1960) and grew up in Vienna/Austria. For the time I'm living with  my family (hubby, three children and one dog) in Northern Norway. Actually north from the Arctic Circle ........... guess who's freezing all the time - LOL! Of course I'm missing my home country, but I try to visit Austria and my family there regularly.

I bought my first PhotoImpact (version 7) in the beginning of 2002, and joined a group, called Newbies. There I've learned a lot about PI and I'm really grateful for all the help I got from all the wonderful people in this group. So if you are new to PhotoImpact and want to learn much about it - join the group, you will not regret it!
Now I've got version 8 of PI and I guess most of my tutorials will be done with this version. 
By the time I'm changing the layout of my site and rewriting some pages - February 2006 -, I've got PI 10 (have had it almost for one year now), and I'm still writing tutorials :)) 

My first camera (and my second one too!) I "inherited" from my father. He has always liked to take pictures and was really glad that I had the same interest in photography as he had. I guess I also got infected with this kind of "travel fever" from him .............. I really love traveling around ............ with my camera following me!
In my early 20th I've been a lot around in Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa. Lately there haven't been to many trips to foreign countries, so I just take my camera and take photos from my surroundings.

In the summer 2001 I bought my first own camera (I'm talking about SLR camera, and not the usual compact cameras!), a Canon EOS 300 with a 28-90mm objective. And guess what Santa, the same year, had in his sack for me .................. a suitable 75-300mm objective. What more could I wish - LOL!

In the meantime, I've got a digital camera, a CANON Powershot S50, and as you might can guess ... I'm really enjoying the easy way of taking photos.
