I got my first DSLR back in 2006. It was a Nikon D90 and was, at the time to me, huge! It was the biggest camera I had held and I spent most nights doing long exposures in and around Darwin. I have since found out that there are much bigger cameras out there and as my skills progressed I upgraded not only my camera but my lenses as well. I quickly gathered a nice little collection of camera gear and after a while I soon had too much stuff that I never used any more. I ended up selling most of it and now have the bare essentials I need to get the job done. This means switching from Nikon to Sony, a decision which was hard for me initially, but am now happy with. The Sony A7 was bought because it was full frame, small and light and was perfect for travelling with. It could do everything my old D700 could do but with half the weight. 80% of the images on my website were taken with the Sony. I do pine for a Nikon D5 and the faster autofocus, but at the moment I’m a happy little camper. As for the photos in this gallery, well, they’re from all around Darwin and apart from the very first one, they were my first photos I took on an DSLR! Practice, practice, practice they say… I’m still doing that and will do that till the end!
