As a young boy I was passed down from my father one of his old 35mm SLR cameras and was always excited sending the film off for developing. As I reached my teens other interests took over and I did not return to photography until a trip to New Zealand in 2006 prompted me to buy a Sony bridge camera.

After purchasing my first mobile phone with a half decent camera (an LG with manual mode camera functionality) this was my go to device for several years until I felt I was ready to improve not only my skills but the type and quality of photographs I could produce.

In 2017 I purchased my first Olympus mirrorless camera and have since added a second camera body along with several lenses and other pieces of photographic equipment.

My camera goes everywhere with me and I photograph pretty much anything that sparks my creative nature and gives me a new challenge.
