I became a serious photographer when I was nine years old. Over the years, my cameras have evolved, and so have my skills. At first, I wielded the clunky, brick-like 2003 Canon PowerShot S50, in conjunction with an old Sony camcorder. I used these casually to capture pixelated images. Gradually, I worked my way up to an advanced point-and-shoot. Finally, in April 2013, I purchased the Canon EOS 7D, a fancy DSLR with a speedy shutter and amazing image quality. Over the years, though, my focus has remained the same: capturing the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
