    Bio:

    Having shot on film most of my life, though quite sporadically, i got my first Dslr 11 months ago and havent looked back. fortunately a combination on a very obsessive nature, a need to discover a new career and in unflux of funds has led me to starting my own business. although i hardly consider myself a sessioned pro, i have come along way through alot of hard work, and i still love to get out and shoot everyday :)
    i am very excited about where my life will take me with this new passion, and welcome any opportunity to learn new things and see new sights

    Biography: Photography runs in the family. For me photography is more of caputuring the moment and also to be able to grab breathtaking landscape photo. Other than that the 5D is something i borrowed from my older brother as he's a pro and doesn't use it as much as his other few camera.

    Biography: I purchased my first DSLR back in perhaps 2008 I believe, and it was an on and off thing for me, until about 7-8 months I started to really pick it up and develop my skill set further. It still a hobby and in no shape or any form I am receiving any profits from my work. I currently still work in IT.

    With like most work fields, if it starts to become your day job you may in fact end up hating it. So with that in mind, at this stage is still just a hobby and very expensive one at that.

    Biography:
    A long time photographer, who did a professional course back in the late '70s, I am now building up my business to make me some income. As I am also a journalist by trade and study (BA Prof Writing) so the photography complements this perfectly.
    My interests are wide ranging but I shoot mainly non People images incl landscapes (my real love), steam trains, historic buildings/structures, wildlife & domestic animals, sport incl surfing, events such as wedding, functions, parties etc.
    I live on the beautiful Tweed/Gold Coast so have lots of stunning palettes to work with.

    Sure why not.

    Location: Sunshine Coast QLD.

    Status: Compact pro. DSLR Padowan.

    Camera: Canon 550D (arrives in 3 days)

    Lenses: 18-55 | 55-250 (comes with camera)

    Accessories: None at the moment. Planning on A tripod, cary bag, battery grip, and remote for now.

    Biography: Well I have graduated from the school of point and shoot with flying colours. I decided to make the move to dslr when I realized that no matter how many pictures I took, or how many different attempts I made, I could never get the shot to look the way I wanted. there just wasnt enough features to satisfy me that I had taken the best shot I could.

    Given I havent Actually Got it yet. But dont you worry. Once I have it in my hot little hands there will be pictures flying onto the web so fast it will make your head spin. (im trigger happy). I could easily take several hundred pictures to get what im after.
