I always wanted to ask this, photographers what inspired you to well for the lack of a better work be a photographer? A photojournalist to hobbyists

Im 14 and wanted to become a photographer for about 5 years when my dad let me first use his Nikon D300 and I now proudly use for almost every photo I take, I guess it was because I love to see that special moment that lasted for seconds forever and never forget it

Nothing really, I just picked up a camera once and it felt like I picked up the holy grail. I wasn't even into nature at the time. Let's just say my life made a 180.

It's in my genes! My great-great grandfather worked for Francis Frith back in the 19th century and as I grew up there was always a camera being waved about in our family. I like the idea that I'm doing something, hopefully at the same level although not as a pro, that one of my ancestors once did. If you believe in all that after-life stuff, maybe he's looking down and hopefully approves of my stuff! LOL!

I must admit, I do like Gary Wingrand's statement, "I take photographs to see what the world looks like photographed.". In this media obsessed age where image is everything, there's something humbling about working with a difficult, silent, 2D medium and still being able to make people go "WOW!" once in a while.

nature here also, Its the only most fulfilling thing that is down to earth for me. I get to overwhelmed in cities and often find myself seeking adventure in the wilderness. Its my passion and I find 90% of the population has lost its touch with whats out in the world. I like to show that in my work there are moments everyday that are overlooked.

To be honest I dont remember starting that well as I was given my first camera at age 5 and have been taking photo's ever since and that was 45 years ago. With the exception of being a pro wedding photographer in the 90s I have never had any ambition to be a working pro or to get any sort of education in photography.

I have a passion for anything visual and as an Industrial Designer I have to be able to visualize and convey that to other people with many kinds of media including photography , hand drawing, computer graphics ( CAD , Solidworks ) and even model making

I photograph nature because I'd be out in nature anyways. My passion for photography stemmed for my passion of nature. Now I have an equal passion for both.
