I am a man from England, and I made this site to share some thoughts and bits of knowledge. When I made this, I had craved the outdoors for a long time. In the last few years, my hunger to travel has increased exponentially. I believe it’s easy 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 travel destinations instead of pixel level sharpness? I’m not saying forums are bad; hardware should definitely be measured subjectively and objectively but I think certain types of educational material–experiences–can’t be bought.
I am a technically minded person. I’ve built many computers, helped people with software, I can code, etc. but a few years ago I recognised a flaw with how I improve at things and realised travelling is important.
For this reason, I planned to hike the Pacific Crest Trail; Visa problems happened, and I chose to hike in Canada. When I arrived in Canada, due to trail conditions changing (fires) and whatnot, I had to be pretty adaptive but I loved my time there and thoroughly recommend going. I plan to go again next year (2020). Because I had spent so much time applying for American Visas that were denied, by the time I entered Canada I was 32. This is unfortunate because the age for a work permit is 18-30 for people from the UK and I would like to work or study there for a while. I appreciate any and all advice with this :).
My photography equipment is often bought with weight, size and portability in mind and many of my reviews will focus on that a bit too. 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. I’ve done a lot of hiking and would be happy to try share useful information. I also know quite a bit about the technical side of cameras but I am not a great landscape photographer by any means, haha. My mistake is I take pics while I’m bumbling along. I really should set time aside and approach it like a professional, then maybe the results will be more professional.
I am currently in the process of making an additional website for my interior photographs (something I am much better at). This site has been a bit of a learning experience for me, and I’m still not 100% sure where I want to take it.
