I’ve been photographing since 1990
It’s hard to say exactly when I started taking photos, but it’s been at least 20 years ago.
I consider myself very lucky given that I’m a self-taught photographer. I bought my first camera – in fact, probably the simplest film camera available at the time – a Russian Zenit TTL, to “test the waters”. And it seems like I’m still testing the waters, as everything continues to evolve (both outside myself and within).
If I wanted to make a list of all the reasons why I chose to take photographs, it would make for a very long list indeed. I photograph different aspects of life and have my own distinct appreciation for how photography enables me to capture the feeling of the moment, without losing its universal appeal.
