I am a self-taught, amateur photographer. I have developed a passion for photography since the 1990s and was eventually able to afford a simple Olympus E-410 in 2008.

I started with floral macro, but as a personal challenge, have been exploring other elements as well. While not aiming to be a professional photographer, I consider myself a dedicated hobbyist.

My works are simple but I hope you still enjoy the rookie viewfinder. Thank you very much for visiting!!
