I live in Outback Queensland.
It's rough country with big distances and few people.
My daily grind is running my own, non-photography related, business.
From the daily rat race, my respite is taking photos of what I see around me and pushing my own boundaries and understanding of light, movement and the tools I have available to me.
From a practical perspective, I'm a Nikon and Mac kinda guy. It works for me but I don't really mind if it doesn't work for you too.
