It all started when my older sister decided to get a little Canon 500D, I obviously had to get something equal to her, so decided to get myself the next model up, a Canon 550D.
This was the beginning of something that had never even crossed my mind.
I started fiddling about with the new camera taking just your average happy snaps, not really having any idea on how to use it at all.
A good mate of mine Daniel had a Canon 40D, and so we would go out every now and then and shoot landscapes and different things, and I started to get this feeling for it, Googling everything about how to use a camera
and what each function does.
Then came more spending, I got my first after market wide angle lens, a must for landscape photographers, and started going out shooting all the time, experimenting with what I had heard and read online.
I had now found what I wanted to do with my life, I wanted to be a landscape photographer.
Over the past two years I have just been taking more and more photos working towards that place where I feel I like the look of my shots. I would say that I am now at that place and am working on refining my style.
Last year in November I had a big turning point as far as my work was concerned, when I had been part of the South West Light presentation held by Christian Fletcher, Toni Hewitt, Peter Eastway, Dr Les Walkling, Nick Rains and Michael Fletcher.
I learnt so much, and picked up on things that have greatly helped me in my own work.
I have spent a bit of time talking with Christian Fletcher who has always been such a huge inspiration to me.
He has and still continues to help me with different things along the way.
I wouldn't know him if it weren't for my sister working at his little framing shop in Busselton many years ago.
I have only really just started selling a few prints, which is picking up too.
