Today I turn 40. Being Gen X not Gen Y, selfies are rare. As it is my birthday and it will make my mum happy an exception was made. The photo on the left was taken while studying engineering at Nottingham. I had no plan to be an engineer or anything at that point. I knew there was no chance of finishing a degree involving essay writing and my folks would support me while I studied anything with some science content. Over the next 10 years I had some interesting jobs but did not settle on a photography career until I was 30. The last 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. The Photoshop experience I gained working in a studio in the UK enabled me to get photography work in Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. My sideline in travel stock photography was given a significant boost after buying this old van in 2011 as was my knowledge of engineering.
