How it all begun….

by derrick

Everything have a beginning. A common question I am often asked is how I started photography. I was 19 back then and this Nikon FM2 SLR camera is the first camera in my life that got me addicted to photography. A friend lent it to me and since then photography becomes part of my life.

I use this camera for my ever first wedding assignment when I was 21; shooting a campmate’s wedding. He got really tight budget for his wedding and he asked if I could do him a favour to cover the event. Since that first assignment, I already got wedding referal.

Today, I bought this 2nd hand camera online, though the exterior show signs of abrasion and scratches, the mechanical part within are still in tip-top working condition. It may not be able to compare with the Nikon D3 and Nikon 700 which I am currently using, having to own this camera many years later really brings back good old memories and here it is, the Nikon FM2 which helps me started it all.
