It was three years ago to this day that I joined DeviantArt. At the time I didn't have high expectations. I knew I wasn't going to become one of the most watched Deviants, I knew my artwork wouldn't become the most viewed or most favorited, and I knew I wouldn't be a household name on the website or in the art industry. I just wanted to become part of the DeviantArt community. I had been visiting the site for eight years and I felt it was time to join it. I actually discovered DeviantArt by chance. I was browsing images related to H.G Wells The War Of The Worlds on google images and I came across a pencil drawing of tripods from the 2005 movie. The link said it was on an art website called DeviantArt so I decided to have a look. My mind was instantly blown. I had always been artistic and I loved to draw, but the website expanded my horizons. A couple of years later, I became interested in photography. I got a Sony SnapShot for Christmas back in 2007 and for the next four years I played around with that, taking pictures of stuff I owned and things I saw on my vacations. After I graduated high school in 2011, I signed up for a photography course at Surrey College and my parents bought me my first professional camera as a graduation present. It was a Nikon D3100 and it expanded my horizons even further. Ultimately, I stopped using my SnapShot and my Nikon became my main camera for everything. My SnapShot was broken anyway, I dropped it while I was at a Vancouver Canucks game back in 2012. I studied and learned the skills of photography while taking two courses at Surrey College from 2011 to 2012. Some of my skills were self taught and I actually learned more since I joined DeviantArt. In fact, I've actually gotten better since I joined DeviantArt and I've had a much bigger reception than I thought I would get and I've even made some new friends along the way. Of course I've had my share of criticisms, but I haven't let them drag me down or let myself lose my spark because of them, nor have I questioned my skills and capabilities as a photographer. I'm still just an amateur and hobbyist, but I would like to make a career out of my photography one day and truly become professional. I still have many dreams and plans involving photography. There are many places I hope to visit one day and capture through the lens. I also still long to capture a perfect shot of an Eagle in the wild. For now I will keep photographing my usual subjects like cityscapes, birds and animals, landscapes, and the various forms of transportation. I will also keep sharing them on this wonderful website. To all of my watchers, I'd like to thank you for your continuous support. I don't think I would have stayed on DeviantArt without it. I look forward to what the next three years have in store for me and what I will achieve and produce in that time.
