A couple of days ago I posted my first entry for @scottcbakken #scottsbiggive
and I feel as though my explanation for wanting to win this giveaway was lost in the writing. First off @scottcbakken
seems to be one of the first people I’ve seen giveaway an unsponsored canon for awhile which I think is amazing and very heartfelt.
Anyway back to my reasoning. I use a nikon d5300 with a sigma art lens. This set up has been my “work” set up for the past two years. Any jobs I’ve done, any commercial, branding, portraiture or personal work has been done with this camera. I get messages from time to time asking me what set up I use and often people are surprised that I’m using such a cheap camera body. I promised myself that I would learn and use any means to get better at my craft. My photography has progressed so much in the past year that I sometimes can’t believe it. I’ve managed to sell photos to businesses on the other side of the world and work for companies I never thought I’d work for. Times change. The camera I use does not make me a good photographer it just helps me with my work. My little camera has given me a life to chase and a means to express myself.
I have entered @scottcbakken
giveaway to hopefully start own brand and also start to fund myself so that I can start to give back to the people I love. I owe so much to my family, my girlfriend and friends. I want to give something back to them by showing that I can make it in this life I’ve chosen to chase. They’ve all helped me so much by supporting me through my choice to be a photographer and I owe them world.
