Born in 1977, I fell in love with aviation in my early years and 5 years ago finally got a job in aviation related company. I did a basic glider training a few years ago aswell but had to cancel it due to car crash. I love travelling, music, mountain-biking and drink some good beer or wine.
I started with my photographic “career” as a teen with Dad’s Zenit camera, followed by Yashica and last film camera Canon EOS 3000.
In 2004, the digital age began when my dad bought Olympus 550uz compact camera. I soon “overgrown” the Oly and was faced with the fact of buying myself my first DSLR. After a quick test of Canon 350D, the winner was decided when I first put my hands on Nikon D70s – the feel of it, the feel that you have a serious tool in your hands (I know it’s just amateur camera but still the ergonomics are great) was the most decisive factor and I never regreted to join the Yellow-Black camp.
My current gear: Nikon D300 with battery grip, Nikkor 50mm f1.4, Nikkor 18-70mm f3.5-f4.5, Sigma 50-500mm f4-f6.3
