Photos


Photography has been my passion for years. In fact, my entire family is into photography one form or another. In this special page, I am sharing with you some of my personal works that are closer to my heart. Photography is a journey, a learning experience, and I grow from the feedback I have received over the years.

Camera used from 2008-2018 is Nikon D700. 2019 July onwards is mostly Nikon Z6.

For the rest of the photo collections that are not featured in this page, follow this tag.
