I received my first camera, as a gift when I was ten years old. Since then, I always had a point-and-shoot camera of some sort lying around the house, but my interest has never gone beyond taking a few shots a year.
After hearing "you have an eye for photography" from friends more than a few times and with a lot of encouragement from my wife, I bought my first professional camera in 2015, at the age of 39.
The purchase of a camera and beginner-level training allowed me to start experiencing the real magic of photography. It is hard for me to put into words how intensely I enjoy spending time both shooting and post-processing. I am a fan of shooting the Milky Way and landscapes. When time or the weather doesn't allow me to be in the great outdoors, I do street photography.
I'm blessed with a devoted, loving wife and a wonderful son. I live by a motto I've created: "life is like a soap-bubble, live it as if you're gone by dawn.”
