Hi and welcome to my page!
I've always struggled with this part of a website or a blog, "about me". There is so much to say! To narrow it down, let me tell you about my journey as a photographer for now. :)
I got my very first camera when I was about 9 years old. It was an analog and it had a set of frames that you could put in. It was really cool! I wouldn't put it out of my hand and I still have tons of albums with pictures of my little and older brothers, family birthdays, etc. Then I just kept getting a little better analog (but automatic) camera from time to time, took it out for trips, take pictures of nature, people...the usual. But I started to realize how much I actually enjoy capturing the beauty of the moment. I think I just loved the fact, that I could show people that I love what I saw and loved, while they were not there with me.
When I was 18 years old, I finally purchased my first digital camera! I got a beautiful red compact Canon, called Jillian that served me so well! It had a great manual option and I started getting more and more interested in how to show the beauty of life through pictures. It wasn't until Jill died, that I had to upgrade a little.
And then...finally...in the summer of 2011, I finally got my first and so far only DSLR. Oh the joy! Since then I've been learning, capturing, relearning and growing.
To be honest, I don't believe that a photographer needs the newest technology to capture the world in his or her eyes. I absolutely adored my first camera and it felt incredible what I could do with such a tiny box. I think a camera is essensial, but not the most important thing for a photographer. I think it's passion. Passion and love. Passion, love and admiration. Admiration of the world we live in. Love for the same world with all it has, its beautiful and unique people as much as breathtaking nature. And passion for finding the best and unique ways how to capture it, how to freeze it in a moment, so we can all share the beauty of life.
Let's share the beauty of life together! I'd be honored to be the one that shares your amazing moments.
