Where did you learn photography?

I took a course during High School at Simon Fraser University's Vancouver campus. The rest  of my skills I picked up by reading, through trial and error, by talking to professional photographers, and by going out to take pictures. In my younger days (well, I'm still young, but you know what I mean), I would venture out every weekend to the mountains of British Columbia to take pictures with my Nikon FM. That's where and how I really honed my skills, by using a fully manual camera in some of the most amazing, and sometimes difficult to access, terrain on earth.
