I am a 31 year old man from eastern England who’s craved the outdoors for a while. In the last few years, I have developed a real hunger to travel. I believe that it’s easy for someone interested in photography to spend money on a camera, lenses, lighting equipment or other material items but it’s sometimes harder for us to take bigger gambles with our money. How many non professional portrait photographers spend money on renting models? How many photography forums are filled with questions about destinations instead of pixel level sharpness? I’m not saying forums are bad, and I believe hardware should be measured objectively, but I think certain types of educational material can be difficult to find.
I am a highly technically minded person. I’ve built many computers, helped people with software, I can code, etc. but I recognise a flaw within how I have been improving at photography. The more I think about it, the more I realise I will have more fun putting my money towards travelling and not the latest zoom lens from Sony. That’s not to imply I crave an adventure purely because I want to improve at photography, but I do dream of getting a few nice photographs at the end of it.
I hope to blog my experiences when hiking the Pacific Crest Trail but if my Visa is declined, I will hike somewhere else. If you know of any beautiful places in Canada, please contact me, as my Canadian eTA has been approved! :).
Most of my latest reviews and photography equipment are bought with weight, size and portability in mind. If you have any questions or concerns about something mentioned on my site that you’re thinking of buying, please let me know and I’d be happy to help. 🙂
If you wonder why there’s no photographs of me here. I hate taking photographs of myself but I am not a hideous monster :).
