I'm also an amateur photographer. I love to get lost in local parks spending the whole day taking pictures of the plants, trees & wildlife.

In fact, all the photos on this page were taken by me!

I use a Canon EOS 550D with 2 lenses:

  • Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III
  • Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro


That's it!
