I’m a 26 year old graphic designer and photographer. I first developed an interest in photography when I was around 12 years old. I've used my photography in a few of my design projects, such as my Australian Wildlife calendar, and in various publications through my job as a desktop publisher. My experience is mainly in nature photography, but I have also been experimenting with portraiture.
I shoot with a Canon 600D twin lens kit and a 50mm 1.8f lens. I don't use any lighting equipment.
Just letting you know that Razer is running a giveaway of heaps of their gaming gear (headphones, keyboards, mice etc).

No buying any of their products or writing 25 words or less. You don't even have to be a gamer (we all use mice and keyboards, yeah?). Just submit your email address through this link :)
I know I don't update my DA journal much. It's probably because I'm more of a Facebook whore and I prefer to keep my personal life just that: personal. Also, I refuse to pay DA for features I can get for free elsewhere (journal themes, posting images, etc).

Silly, I know. But I learnt my lesson. I went through the freak out/mental breakdown stage, then the 'maybe it'll be ok' stage, and finally accepting that I won't ever get my photos back. I sent it
