MY PHOTOGRAPHY:
Ever since I was a child, I had a fascination with art and photography. Even from the Polaroid camera days, I was always running around snapping off photos of anything and everything imaginable with whatever cheap camera I had at the time. I never really considered pursuing photography any further than just a passionate hobby, but if I had a chance of exploring a second career today with the proper time and equipment, photography would probably be among the top three of my list.

Most of my photography evolves around vacations I have taken through the years. I visited Asia for the first time in 1993, when I was still a student. This trip was made possible by the profits I made by managing my sisters savings and investing them in very profitable shares and derivatives. During this very first trip to Asia I immediately became fascinated with the culture, landscape and people of these countries, and soon became somewhat of an Asia fanatic. I now spend a majority of my vacations traveling to Asia visiting these wonderful places. I have presently visited 10 countries in Asia, with many more to visit in the future. I also enjoy nature and wildlife very much, and love exploring the spectacular natural wonders these countries have to offer. There is so much to see and so little time.

My photography was always just a means of capturing memories of those vacations, but with whatever artistic flair I could muster at the time. I enjoyed showing them off to family and friends, but never dreamed of others really viewing them as pieces of art. The internet has become a very strong interest of mine, so in April of 1996 I thought it would be interesting to learn HTML, and create some sort of a web site to experiment with the new medium. Since I had 100's of these photographs lying around collecting dust, it only made sense to transfer a few of them to the computer before they were lost forever, while also allowing others to experience them. The initial heightened interest in my website by others caught me a bit by surprise. As time went on, the site kept growing larger and larger with more added features. The site now features over 600 photos, and I plan on continually adding more as time permits. I gradually began receiving requests for photos to feature in various publications, books, and magazines. Requests via e-mail also started flowing in from those wanting to purchase enlargements, so I recently expanded the site to include information on purchasing photos. It has turned into a wonderful experience, and I am quite pleased that others seem to be enjoying these photos too.

The website has really sparked a flame within myself to spend even more time exploring and photographing the beautiful landscapes, natural wonders, and architecture that our planet and especially Asia have to offer. If I achieve anything else from the site, I would hope it at least inspires a few others to experience these wonderful countries in person too, and ultimately get a better understanding of the many different cultures and people out there on this planet.


MY PHOTO EQUIPMENT:
My photo equipment is nothing to really bragg about. The cameras have changed through the years, but a majority of the website photos were shot with a Nikon F90 body and a Nikon 28-200mm 3.5/5.6 AF-D lens. It is certainly not the newest equipment, but the best general purpose combination of body and lens I've ever owned. For me it's the ideal equipment for travel photography. I "tested" it in very difficult and extreme climatic conditions, such as hot and extremely humid virgin rainforests on Borneo and ice-cold and snowy mountain-tops in the Italian Alps, and never had a single failure.
I do routinely shoot in aperture priority mode, sometimes in shutter priority mode, but very rarely in fully automatic mode.
