I always had a passion for photography along with that for traveling.
I love to tell the tales of all the meetings during my many travels. I also love to showcase the versatility and variety of styles that I like, although I really prefer the scenic landscape.
I founded a photographic club of which I am vice president. I have also been published in a variety of photographic journals.
When did you start photography?
I got my first camera when I was a kid and I never left it. When I got married I received a Nikon D100 as gift. In 2010 my wife bought me a used Nikon D90. With that camera and the photo ‘Ghost from the earth’ I won a Nikon D7000. Last year (2015) I bought a used Nikon D800 and this is the camera I use today.
