I was born in 1977 and grew up in Durban, South Africa and spent the better part of 21 years there before moving to the UK in 1998. My immediate family still live in Durban so I get to visit frequently which is still important to me.
In my teen years, I knew nothing about the complexity of photography, but I always loved taking photos. I used to run around with a Ricoh compact camera - film (remember that!), but knew only about clicking the shutter button and nothing about the workings of a camera.
I have always loved playing with cameras (and numerous other gadgets).
I purchased my first dslr back in 2006 (which was a Canon 400D with 18-55mm kit lens). I then sold that camera (well tried to sell it on Ebay and I got conned - long story - NEVER again), and purchased the Canon 50D with the Canon 24-70F2.8L lens. After many years of experience gathering - thanks to you all on Flickr - and thanks to hours spent watching youtube clips (I still do this frequently) - I started to slowly collect some more L lenses and also buy in to full frame cameras.
I'm forever learning and forever passionate.
