Default Hi from Catalonia, Spain

I found you all be chance over the weekend and it seems to have been a lucky coincidence.
I am a New Zealander who has lived in a small town on the Costa Brava for the last 38 years, more than half my life, so my claim to still be a Kiwi is a little thin.
I took up photography in 2012 more or less seriously never realizing it would become my passion. I mainly concentrate on portrait and lifestyle work with a large import of working as a photographer with an internationally known contemporary dance company.
I took up analog some three or four years ago to recycle and learn the unlearned and have rapidly fallen in love all over again. I am now concentrating on that and keep my digital efforts for dance and a few other things.
I do medium format work with a Mamiya 645pro and a Mamiya C330. I also do 35mm work with a Praktica MLT3, a Yashica FX3 Super and a Nikon FM2.
I've just picked up a Zero 2000 6x6 pinhole (oh, what fun!)
As a pensioner I almost gave up on my new love due to price rises in film and labs until a friend talked me into home developing and scanning.
My love affair continues.

Anyway, nice to meet you all!

Hello Joe, and a very warm welcome to the forum.

Hopefully, we'll be able to talk you into setting up a wet darkroom...
