For as long as I’ve been photographing, I’ve always had a soft spot for gear and the technical side of photography. In the beginning, I was obsessed with getting the best camera I could afford, which ironically was a refurbished entry-level Nikon DSLR – not exactly the pinnacle of camera technology at the time.
For the years following, I shot with Nikon DSLRs and these cameras are the ones that I first started my photography career with. At the time my needs for a camera were simple – good image quality. Most of my work was still travel photography but mainly posed portraiture, landscape work and the occasional ‘action’ shot. I didn’t care about weight or usability, in my mind DSLRs were the only way to do it.
