Back in 2014, I boarded a plane from Frankfurt to Canada. It was in April, and it was the day before Good Friday. I arrived in Toronto on the afternoon of April 17. After I went through customs and got my work permit, me and the group I travelled with got picked up by our travel company in an airport shuttle, which was actually a party van.
And also why I write photos with an ‘F’.
Since I was quite young, I really enjoyed photography.
When I got my first digital camera, I totally went nuts with it, snapping multiple shots of just about anything. That camera broke. So I needed a new one.
That was when I got my first SONY camera (a DSC-W275), what was also the first camera I bought myself. I really loved it and I used it a lot. But I somehow broke the screen while traveling in Croatia.
After that, I went on some kind of hiatus, just snapping everything with the crappy little camera of my iPod touch.
That changed when I graduated from Highschool when I got a SONY DSC-HX20v as a graduation gift. And that was when my style of photography changed, mostly because I was thinking about composition a bit more. That was also when I first started to edit using Pixelmator on my iPad. Sadly, that camera went into a lake in Canadas Algonquin Park with me as a friend of mine accidentally tipped the canoe we were riding back then. Luckily I got it back to working condition with the help of a bag of rice. Except for the GPS and integrated flash unit.
Fast forward to Christmas 2015, when I got my first DSLR, a Canon EOS 100D, known as a Rebel SL1 in the Americas. I also got myself an Adobe Creative Cloud photography plan and a 50mm f/1.8 Prime lens. Next, I’ll buy a 55-250 Tele lens and a new tripod, since some crappy cyclist broke my old tripod.

PS: I write photography with an ‘F’ as an homage to my home country of Germany.
