I'm a hobbist creative arts/urban photographer, also the creator of ]Lime[ urban photography, which has an in-your-face & around the corner feel to it. I would love to take up photography as a full time thing but at the moment i'm juggling between work and production jobs on the movie set as a sound recordist.
Photography is not always about glamour, it is what you see in your own eyes what inspires you, I'm just that kind of guy that would go that distance to find the 'spark'.
There seems to be alot of professional photographers/model around here. I feel rather intimidated & underequipped hehe =P Not to worry though equipment is at the moment least of my worries. Because at the end of the day, its just you, the camera, and the picture.
