What made you first pick up the camera?
I started out with an Agfa click3 as a youngster, capturing everything that made sense and sometimes no sense at all. I was fascinated by the sheer beauty of seeing an image in more dimensions in a photograph than with the naked eye. My father had a Canon AE1 program body with a 50mm lens which was instrumental in shaping my career as a professional photographer. Shooting people and capturing them in varied moments on a roll of film got me seriously interested in getting into professional photography as a career.
