Since I was teen my passion was photography. Even though, my background is land surveying I knew that I would come back to photography at a later date since I have a great love of nature and the outdoors. I first started as a hobby photographer to escape city crowd and later on developed into a passion, and an ambition to pursue photography at a professional level.
I studied photography on my own from books. I would read a chapter or two of a book, go for a hike with my camera and in the evening I would edit and analyze the images. This would repeat whenever I have free time.
My wife and I have a one year old son, and she suggested I pursue photography full time while taking care of my son.
I think the camera equipment is not crucial for making successful images, but the ability of a photographer to see what other people cannot see.
