If I had to define a starting point for my passion in photography, it would be when I purchased my first used camera in 2014 – a Canon EOS 550D with the 18-55mm kit lens.
At that time I had no technical skills or particular knowledge in the handling of a SLR camera and what makes a photograph. The understanding of light and the technical terms of “focal”, “aperture” and “ISO” didn’t really make sense to me yet.
Gradually I started consulting blogs and tutorial websites in order to learn more about the theory of photography, the technical terms and the settings of my camera. At the same time I applied what I was learning, I experimented with practice, I made trials and learnt from mistakes.
Over time I have continued my self-learning and discovery of the many applications that photography can have. I also expanded my range of equipment by acquiring 2 new lenses. In 2018 after a sabbatical year traveling through Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and Canada, I increased my love for photography and realised that I wanted more of it.
In 2020 I came back to Sydney, I moved in with my partner and I enrolled at the Billy Blue College of Design of Sydney in the Diploma of Photo Imaging. I am now perfecting my technical skills and acquiring more knowledge necessary in becoming a professional photographer.
