Photography is a growing hobby of mine. My friends Kyle Kemp and Ian Campbell first inspired me to give it a try. I began dabbling with my dad's old SLR in 2005, I got my first digital point-and-shoot for my trip to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in 2007, and in 2010 I picked up a used DSLR, a Canon 40d. I've used that camera with a Canon EF 24-105 f/4 L IS for the last five years (hmm, time for a camera upgrade?). I take photos to documents my trips as much as I go on trips in order to take photos.
