Albert Einstein once said: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

I live in a small town in Ontario surrounded by miles of nature, so there’s no shortage of beauty and wildlife. About three years ago, I picked up my dad’s old Canon and fell in love with how to world looked through his 55mm lens.

I saved up my money, and eventually, got myself a Nikon D3400, top of the line at the time. During that time, I’ve developed my skills as a photographer working in a studio, and on location as a professional photographer trying to find my true passion.

You see, I knew I loved photography, just not working inside. If I’m being honest, the longer I was in the studio, taking pictures became a chore rather then passion.

That’s when I decided to be a freelance microphotographer. I would spend countless hours in nature perfecting my lighting, framing, as well as patience.

Within 4 months of my transition, my fan base on Instagram increased from 273 followers to 1.3k. That motivated me and gave me the drive to start my own website and drop a shipping company with my own pictures on my products.

One thing I learned along this short but rapidly evolving journey is that everybody loves a touch of nature, and it is my privilege to bring it to them whether that be through my newsfeed or my products.
