Goals – a Learning Experience

Thank you for taking the time to read this page.  I started this site with a couple of goals in mind, to showcase my photography and improve my writing and web skills.  I am a strong believer in continually learning and challenging oneself.

A History of Learning

My interest in computers started in the 80s with the Commodore 64.  At the time I had dreams of being a computer programmer and even though I completed a Bachelor of Information Technology this was no longer the career for me.  I decided to do further studies and began a Graduate Diploma of Geomatic Studies (Geographic Information Systems) and gained employment as a GIS Technician.  Other formal study I have completed was a Graduate Certificate in Science, as I said “continual learning”.

I won’t bore you with a list of the all various online courses I have completed but will provide links to ones I considered worthwhile.  The most recent course I completed was how to quickly build website using WordPress.  This is a great course for people who have no idea on how start building a website.  It begins with getting a domain name, finding a web host, and creating a site using WordPress.  Is using WordPress cheating? Not sure, but that sounds like a good name for a future blog.

Photography Goals

Photography has been a hobby of my since late 2009 after buying my first DSLR camera.  This hobby has given much enjoyment and a few frustrations, I will share these stories and some images on my blog.  My favourite subjects are macro/nature photography, I find taking photos of people challenging.  This probably has something to do with being an introvert.  I do not pretend to be a professional photographer and I am happy to receive constructive comments/criticism.
