How did you start photography? What inspires you?
So one day I was on a day trip to Wollongong, I took lots of pictures on my phone and had so much fun editing them. when I came back home, I asked my dad if I could use his camera for when we went to Japan. He said yes. So when I was in Japan, my dad taught me all the basics of the camera and how to take good pictures. From there on, I started posting my pictures on Instagram and made lots of new friends with other photographers on Instagram. I get most of my inspiration from looking at other photographer’s work.
