I am a 31 year old man from England who’s craved the outdoors for a while. In the last few years, I have developed a real hunger to travel. I believe it’s easy for someone like me interested in photography to spend money on a camera, lenses, lighting equipment or other material items. 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 travel destinations instead of pixel level sharpness? I’m not saying forums are bad, and hardware should definitely be measured subjectively and objectively, but I think certain types of educational material can be hard to find.
I am a 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 need to travel to boost my photography skills. 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 along the way.
For this reason, I originally decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in America. After two attempts at getting a US Visa–which was denied on both occasions–I decided to re-think my idea. I have now decided to hike the Great Divide Trail in Canada. My Canadian eTA has been approved and I have about half a year until I leave! :). I would still like to hike the Pacific Crest Trail and perhaps after I’ve hiked the Great Divide Trail, America will be more inclined to accept my Visa application–third time lucky. It’s unlikely I will be able to afford it afterwards but who knows where life will take me.
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, it’s because of weirdos. However, I will probably take some self portraits in Canada :). If you’re interested in reading about my Canadian travels, please let me know as it’ll give me more motivation to write, haha :).
