Why do you love photography? 

“I love photography because it allows me to create art rooted in reality. It enables us to capture moments that would otherwise just blend into all the other moments that have passed. Instead, we can freeze time in a way and be able to look back at it over time, seeing something new or different in it because while the image hasn’t changed, we have”

That is usually my response to the question “Why do I love photography?”

What equipment do you use and how did it start?

I got into it pretty late in life though, times were tough back then. We’ve all gotta start somewhere, so I saved up enough cash to buy a little Sony point-and-shoot camera, these days I’m shooting with a either a Fujifilm X-T1, X-T10, or my trusty iPhone 5s.

The plan from back then was just to take pictures of whatever I found interesting, cityscapes, landscapes, wildlife, or people in random places.

I have spent countless HOURS working on writing about my take on photography or my artist statement. The writing that results is often lacklustre and sometimes just plain cheesy or preachy or some other undesirable adjective. Anyhow it turns out I really do know the answer to this question though, and I hope I never lose sight of that.
