About Drawing With Light

About

Hi, my name is Ivan. I was born in South Africa in the town of Lyttelton, Pretoria. When I was 9 yrs old, my family and I moved to New Zealand. We have lived in the Winterless North since we got here over 7 yrs ago, and we have been enjoying this beautiful, pristine country ever since!

When I was 11 yrs old I bought my first camera. A cheap $120 point and shoot. But I loved it! Because of photography, I have had so many unique opportunities that I would not have had if I did not have a camera. I love photography!!!

In the 2 yrs that I have been a photographer, I have improved my photography and artistic skills a lot, but I still need to improve. That is why I am here. To help others and get feedback on my own work.
Please don't hesitate to speak your mind, I would really like to hear it. I'd love to get your thoughts and advice on the photos I post!

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”
— Irving Penn
