Some of you might remember I did a post at the end of last year entitled “The last post for 2010… The real me“. In that story I mentioned how I got started and how a good friend lent me his camera to start doing my street style photography. After 1 year of leeoliveira.com I kept thinking to myself… what’s next? Even though I was getting some great shots with my Nikon camera, I knew it was time to upgrade. So… I decided to buy a new camera. The crazy part about this story is I ended up buying a Canon. Yes, people told me I was crazy to switch brands as I had to learn a new operating system. You’re probably thinking the same.
Well, after one week using my new camera, I couldn’t be happier with it. From tomorrow you’re going to see an even better standard of photography than what you have been seeing with my 10 year old Nikon. My Nikon was good to me but it’s time to say goodbye and hello to my new Canon baby. The fact that I will be eating bread and water for the next year to pay for it is another story….haha
What can I say! I’m crazy. My philosophy has always been ‘you need to keep challenging yourself in order to grow’.
I have some more exciting news for you as well. I will be attending Mercedes-Benz Berlin Fashion Week SS 2012. I am over the moon about this as I have never been to Berlin. If you have any tips for me, I’d be more than happy to hear about them.
After Berlin, I’ll have a quick stopover in Milan for a very important meeting. I can’t reveal anymore at this stage but I’m working on something quite big and will let you know when it all comes together.
As the Pointer Sisters once said… “I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it, I’m about to lose control and I think I like it..”
Ps. This photo was taken by another really good friend and photographer, Anthony (from ahphotography).
