My Scholarship entry - Pet sitting Denzel

Australia | Wednesday, 19 November 2014 | 5 photos

I started traveling in the noughties as part of my annual holidays. In 2011 (aged 30), I bought my first DSLR for a trip to Japan. Japan became a catalyst to change direction in life. By the end of that year, I left my corporate IT job and traveled for two years. Currently, I'm back in Australia blogging about my travels.

I am mostly self-taught with early influences from my best friend (an amateur/semi-professional photographer). The only formal training I had was a 16-hour introductory course back in 2011.

As a person, I like learning about the world and society. As a photographer, I like capturing nature's presence. When I feel a bond (when I care about this place, person or animal), my photography flows more naturally. The end result is love.

I am driven to take better shots in a continual process of developing my own voice. At the same time, I hope it leads to professional publication.

Winning this scholarship means a chance to have a mentor; go on assignment; learn about the industry; and improve my technical ability. It also means a chance of proving to myself.

I will like my photography to be of service to this world. To open our doors in life.
