I've always had an appreciation for photography and putting myself in the photographer's shoes for The Shot.
I got into this by trying to learn what was really needed by a newly created department at my day job. Its in radio and I'm an Engineer.
The videographers and photographers are telling me things they need, but I didn't understand why or why we need to spend x amount. I bought a camera for myself, started learning and kept learning and fell in love with another passion.
