Daniel speaks about his love of photography
Photography is a powerful medium which can be use in many ways to add interest to a boring presentation, inspire an idea in a potential prospect or simply balance a page layout. There is too much to convey regarding the art of photography, I could easily write a book on the subject and hope to one day do just that.
In over twenty years of doing it I've found it to have no boundaries and therefore limitless scope and application. If there IS a limit to this medium it MUST be imagination. In my experience I have used 35mm SLRs, medium format cameras, Advantix (APS) cameras, digital video and still cameras and Super-8mm film cameras.
You have to know what looks right inside a frame and when to take the shot, and just as importantly when to wait.
Despite my experience I tend to think of photography as a hobby because I rarely use it directly to earn a living. However, I often find my photographs making their way into my graphic artwork or web sites. Also, many of my photos have been published in newspapers, magazines and newsletters. I often include my pictures as watermarks in the background, or sometimes as cover art for presentations.
With photography the learning process never ends and I find myself exploring the medium as much today as I did 10 or 20 years ago. In 1986 I photographed Halley's Comet, using a 400mm lens on my trusty Olympus OM10 and B&W film. In 2001 I photographed Venice Italy, using an ultra compact APS camera. These days, I use a Canon Digital SLR for the majority of my work.
