I'm not a photographer. I'm a broadcast graphics designer & tech geek. I spend more time googling lenses and talking about cameras than I do taking pictures, hopefully sometime soon that will change. :-)

For fellow hardware geeks, some historical information of equipment I've used:

I've discovered that better cameras and better lenses have not improved my photography directly, but this unsatiable lust for new gear has improved my knowledge and understanding of how they work, which in turn hopefully will improve my pictures in the end. Plus, I simply love camera hardware, love it!

I've decided I'm going to map all landscape photos I take in Iceland. If you're ever interested in knowing where I was during a particular picture, try and see if there's a map link in the bottom right corner on the photo page.

PS. I'm a horrible commenter, I am however an awesome viewer. If you comment or favourite any of my photos I always check out your photostream & profile, without exception. I absolutely appreciate the time you're giving me by commenting, fave'ing or just viewing. So thank you!

PSS. I am honoured that you want to invite to your Invite Only group with your screen stretching beautiful and colourful banners in the comments, but please refrain from posting them to my photos, thanks!

My job :)
