Hello everyone, I got into photography in Jan. 2008. Thats the day I quit smoking. I tried all the stuff there is for helping you to quit smoking but it never worked, I thought about how much it costs to smoke here in Canada for one year (around $3600 if you smoke 1 pack a day) so I bought a camera with some equipment that cost around that amount. It's Nov. 2014 and have not had one cigarette since. I'm a Bricklayer/Concrete Finisher/Carpenter/Labourer, thats how I make a living. I've been married for 32 years and have a grandson. I took a basic digital photography night course and been having fun with my new hobby ever since. I truly hope you like my photos as much as I have making and processing them. Thank you for looking.
