A newbie from Wootton Bassett

Hi, ok a quick run down on who I am and what I'm doing here. My names Ian and I was born in Govan, Glasgow in the early 60's. I served my time as a welder in Babckocks in Renfrew before joining the Army "R.E.M.E. as a recovery mechanic. I now drive a car transporter for a living.
Photography is quite a new hobby for me and I really only got hooked when my wife bought me a Canon 350d when we were on holiday in Dubai April 2006, I have since upgraded and my set up is as follows Canon 40D body, Canon BG-E2N Battery grip, Canon Macro lens EF-100 Canon EFS 10-22 wide angle lens, Tamron AF 70-300 zoom lens, Sigma EF-500 DG SUPER flash, Manfrotto 190XP tripod + 488RC2 head. All in all I'm now quite happy with my set up, could do with a better zoom lens but that said, the Tamron has turned in some decent shots so credit where credit's due.

So why am I here ? . . . .

Experience . . . . or should I say the lack of

Up to now, It's only been me and the poor wife who I'v dragged all over the country side and wildlife parks for company on a shoot, "bless her"

What I'm hoping for is to gain hands on experience, by that I mean I would be extremely grateful to anyone out there who could use an extra man on say a wedding or commercial shoot, or even help out in the studio for the day.
I have some experience of photoshop cs2 on the mac but sadly I have not had much time to get my head round that program and tend to stick to Canon's own software to covert my raw pictures and edit them in i-photo or various other editing programs that I have.


Regards

Ian.
