Hello

Hi, I'm James and have been interested in photography from a young age. I didn't do much in the way of photography other than the odd holiday snap until the last couple of years.

I particularly enjoy travelling to remote areas and like being outdoors as much as possible so I primarily shoot landscapes though occasionally wildlife or cities.

I got an Olympus EM5 Mark ii a little over a year ago as I wanted something better than my previous superzoom but that would still be portable enough to not hinder me when travelling. So far I've been really impressed with it and the only thing lacking is my ability!

I've tried to attach a few photos I took last year but not sure if it worked.

Cheers
James
