I used to randomly take photos with my point and shoot, then I discovered the insect world, I found them fascinating and became hooked on photography.
I purchased my 1st DSLR in 2013 and the rest you could say, is history. My photography journey began, with me reading many online photography articles and watching alot of photography youtube videos, which I still do today.
By far the best lessons and experience I gained, was by getting out there and "just doing it".
I spent many hours photographing birds, why birds? because they can be fast moving, especially the small birds.
They made me think on my feet, I had to be quick and have a steady hand. I experimented with the different camera settings and ISO and deleted more photos than I kept.
Wildlife, Landscapes & Nature photography, I just love it. Being out in nature, anytime of the year, whether I take a photo or not, makes perfect sense to me.
I think this quote by Steve McCurry sums me up, quite nicely.
” My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport”
You maybe be wondering what else I do, when I am not "Out There".
I am a dog trainer and behavourist and yes, I spend a good deal of my time outdoors, dog training.
