I started taking pictures with my camera when I was like 14 years old. I used my compact camera, and it was really shitty pictures - even though I thought they were awesooooomeee. I then bought my lovely Canon EOS 450d when I was 16. I'd saved money for 1,5 year and when I had all the money it was like one of the happiest days in my life. My dream was to become a photographer, and I started taking photos of everything, and everywhere.
After getting used to Gullan, that's my cameras name, I started taking pictures of people. And then myself. Selfportraits is my big thing. Last year was my big selfportrait-year. Almost every week I had my camera and me and shoot some really good photos.
The thing about selfportraits is that you can have it anyway you want to. You don't have any model or for example a dog that have to take your directions. You decide everything from light, poses and where to shoot. It's so great. And it's actually a big self confidence-boost.
