Australia, 2007 - This is when and where I was first introduced to photography. My father gave me a 'Canon Powershot A610' for my 17th birthday. Like all other teenagers at this stage when they receive a small camera, I obviously packed it away and went back to gaming.
It wasn't until a few months after, on a trip to Sydney that I started to use it. However, on a later trip with my family, the camera was unfortunately lost forever in the worst way humanly possible - it is forgotten on a dining table in a shopping mall.
Fast-forward a couple of months and I managed to save up just enough to buy a 'Nikon D40' with a kit lens (18-55mm). It was at this point that I become an amateur and this gallery reflects that. Word of warning, I was shooting everything in JPG so apologies for the loss of quality.
