    G'day everyone

    Just a quick introduction to say hi.

    I'm 32 and based in Brisbane, Australia. Whilst photography was somewhat of a new hobby that I took up 1.5 years ago, it something that I have fallen in love with and has turned into somewhat of an income spinner for me! How lucky am I!! Countless hours are spent reading, researching, practising and doing it all again. Having a father who has been a photographer for 40+ years is also handy. My main cameras are Sony A7 and A7r, however I am also using some old film for a bit of fun on a Yashica Electro 35 GSN, A Minolta set 303b, Polaroid SX 70 Sonnar and a Leica M6. Lenses on the A7 cameras are the Zeiss 16-35, Zeiss 24-70 and Sony 70-400mm along with legacy Minolta Rokkor lenses, Olympus, Cannon, Nikon and Leica.

    Three external flash units are used with the Sony's and they are the HVL -F43 units. Used in conjunction with the Phottix Odin Trigger and receiver systems.

    It might seem like a bit of gear, but in all honesty I would be happy with one A7 and the 24-70mm lens - the rest is either used for specific shoots or a bit of fun.

    Most of my shooting revolves around Wildlife, Beaches, sport, Fashion and real estate. I enjoy varying where and how I shoot - indoors, outdoors, lighting, HDR and Black and White. HDR program used is Photomap Pro and all editing is done using lightroom and Photoshop.

    In April of 2015 I'm moving to Mongolia with trips to Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Europe and Africa ahead of me also - in short, some absolutely amazing photography opportunities.

    If you are on instagram, feel free to take a look at my account for some of my "hobby" shots - Dan_Lewis_photography.

    Thanks for reading and please feel free to say hi - Hopefully I can help with some questions and give back for the hundreds I will no doubt be asking :)
