"When I was 7 years old, my father denied me a vacation to London, England because my grades at school suffered. The following year my grades vastly improved and I went on my first family vacation, on that vacation I was fascinated with my father's SLR camera, I begged to play with it and lost in on the London underground and promptly ended my father's photography hobby.
That memory is still vivid and I am trying to regain my "father's lost photography", throughout my travels I have shot with various point and shoots but my photography really took off when I bought my first SLR in 2007 (Canon40D), which I still continue to shoot with today. I love to shoot travel photography from wide open vistas to wildlife and macro flower shots- whatever motivates me take a shot. I have found my technical background to perfectly compliment my photography where I can try emerging techniques such as HDR to create my own look.
