It all started when my grandpa gave me an old but grand Minolta camera that had been passed down from his father, as a gift for my birthday when I was 10. I started getting so excited about it that I instantly felt the urge to go outside and take my first shots. It wasn't easy when you are 10 and you have to hold an old metallic 200mm lens attach to a rock solid body! I had always been passionate about nature, birds, plants and all sorts of creeping creatures, and attempted to capture and photograph everything that moved and wiggled around. As time passed by and interests slightly changed, my teenage years unconsciously -or not?- pulled me away from photography and I had never really touched a camera ever since (except from the one on your phone...). Until now! Who would have known that my so hectic teacher job in a little Danish province school allowed me to go out and take pictures? Besides my love for animals and plants, I also found a passion for grander things, like the night sky and the universe. Perfect, I thought... I bought myself a new Canon EOS 70D camera along with some cool lenses, and started shooting the night sky. Hmmmm not so easy, I realized, looking at my horrendous and underexposed first pictures. Good thing for me that we live in 2014 and that I can find any tip I want on the net. That's what I did, and I rapidly got the hang of it. Not too hard now, you just need patience, a sturdy tripod, a timer remote and a lot of batteries!
We are now in 2016 and two years after I started touching a camera again, it feels like I can't get my hands off it. It's like a drug. Especially when I get the rare occasion of a clear night sky between two banks of viking mist. But I took the bull by the horns and I added to my collection an equatorial mount (for night sky objects tracking) and the new incredible 42 megapixels Sony alpha 7rII that allows me to shoot in 4K, along with couple of dope objectives.
My goal now: try and take incredible and unseen pictures.
