I am Jeets and I am a photographer.
A bit of my story: I have liked photography since I was 7 yrs old. I remember, I and my parents were on a day trip and my dad handed me his simple (film) point and shoot camera (about time he did that, i was curiously eyeing it since the time he bought it ), and asked me to take a pic of him and my mom. I will post that pic as soon as I get my hands on that photo without my mom noticing 😉
And then, the rest was ‘history’! Whenever a film was loaded in that camera, my after school activity would be to dress my spitz, aka Ricky, with some goggles and scarf, perch him up on a stool (poor dog couldn’t escape me!) and photograph him.
During my third year, at my Hotel Management college, I used my photography talent to capture some behind the scenes moments of my classmates as well as juniors preparing for the annual food festival. It was real fun.
A couple of years later, I married my boyfriend/ best friend/high school senior/ family friend, Patrick.
He bought a digital point n shoot camera for ‘us’. Yeah, you guessed right. The moment I laid my hands on that, Patrick didn’t have an opportunity to use it(god bless him, he is a very sweet guy ;)) Moving around, USA to Canada and back to USA (the place I finally call home) I finally decided to take a bold step (no getting married wasn’t a bold step at age 22 but taking up photography as a full time ‘Hobby’ was ) and in Sep 2008, I invested in my first SLR off of Craigslist. An almost 50 yrs old film camera! A month later, I upgraded to DSLR. And today, even when I don’t carry my gear, I do capture moments I come across with my handy iPhone (Thank you Apple) LOL 😀
Since then ‘my Journey’ has been non stop.
