I have a passion for photography and I enjoy showing it to others. I have been taking pictures since childhood using compact old SLR 35mm film cameras. In 1996 I bought my first digital camera and photography became important part of my life. In 2006 I bought my first digital SLR, a Canon 350d, and I have been using the Canon range ever since, currently a Canon 550d.

All of my writings in this category are photography related, either my own projects, tutorials or guides. You can also view my photos in my photography gallery or view my portfolio.
