An emotional wakening (eventually)

The first emotion was excitement, but this was the exitement I felt (and still feel) when taking photographs. It's a great feeling... continue reading

On My Way!

A few months ago I purchased my first "real" camera.I have always loved photographing everything but never thought about doing it for any profit.While online trying to teach myself about photography, I stumbled on the DT website.At first, my thoughts were "stock-what?"I hadn't ever considered where photographs used for everything came from.I decided, after a few weeks of thinking it over and learning/shooting as much as I had free time for, that maybe I would try submitting something... continue reading

He loves sports and recently took up running... continue reading
