Tasman, one of my favourite creations

Are you a boat designer Ricardo?

Yes, Mark. I mostly do commercial craft up to about 40m, but occasionally I get to design a motor yacht or sailing yacht. This one is all timber and was launched in 2008...she has just returned from a long cruise in the South Pacific and Australian waters.

That sounds like a fulfilling career you have there Ricardo. :-)

Yes in many ways it is. But it can be rather fraught at times as there is no satisfaction in doing the "same old stuff" all the time so I am continually going out on a limb and pushing boundaries, and that can be a bit nervewracking.

But all in all, I enjoy the work and the life, though it doesn't create a huge income in these uncertain times! ;)

What do you do when you're not making your lovely photographs?

Ricardo222,

Beautiful classic lines, I'm a flappy cloth man myself, but as a Yachtmaster power Instructor as well I do appreciate good design.

Well thank you very much Richard. Yes I knew from somewhere else on this forum that you are a sailing man. And a very patient one I surmise...to be an instructor...you have my respect!

I got into this business through sailing...ocean cruising and single-handed racing, for my sins!:D

I am an antique dealer and also run a couple of new photography businesses, also about to launch a videography business.

So basically, what I do is try to make a living as best I can! :-)

Thanks, but I never thought of instructing as a chore, rather as a delight being with like minded people enjoying ourselves. I've just had lunch with three other instructors and its true for all of us, we do tend to like "people". The best were the 5 day Yachtmaster exam prep weeks, the students knew all the theory and my time was spent polishing them, putting it all into some kind of workable context and adding a few basic people management skills. Hard work? Never.

I'm a check airman (pilot instructor) for an airline, and I feel the same way. I love working with new people and passing on my knowledge.

All I can say is that the world needs more "people" people like you guys. I guess that my profession depends to a fair degree on getting alongside people to find out what their needs are in the craft I design for them, but I do prefer working alone, and have for most of my life. (It drives my darling lady wild sometimes!:D)

WTC Memorial yesterday.
Used a Polarizer @24mm.
A tilt shift woulda' been nice.
Gorgeous sunny day.
Buildings looked unreal in person.
