I started photography when I was 9 and fell in love with it. Back then, my grandfather gave me a small Kodak Instamatic camera set with 126mm film for Christmas. However, my first results left a lot to be desired. What really got my interest was editing black and white film. I was fascinated by the darkroom process and the magic of seeing the images come out of nowhere onto the photographic paper. I spent many hours in the semi-dark basement of my parents' house!
Anyone who has a four-legged friend knows the health benefits they bring. Both physically and mentally. Imao is my adorable Scottish Bearded Collie and he's always with me to distract me while I'm taking pictures. I love him above everything else!
