I started out using an old 120mm camera my dad lent me because it was the only one I had. At the time I sort of hated that camera because it wasn't the DSLR everyone else had, but in the end I learned a lot about photography with it - how to develop film, make black & white prints and how sometimes a mistake is the best thing that can happen to a picture.
If you spend any time with me, you'll know that I always have a camera with me, whether it's a DSLR or my trusty and constantly upgraded iPhone. I never get tired of trying to do something completely new with photography. And I'm always trying to somehow change the world with it.
In photography and in life, I think the journey is the destination.*
