About me …because every blog has one, right?

don’t have a fancy Nikon or Canon SLR camera (yes, since this was originally written I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a new Nikon D5100 SLR. Entry level camera, I know, but for me it is fancy!), no zoom lenses (28-55mm and 55-300mm VR) and no photographic training (this, sadly, is still true).

I still believe in one thing though, and that is that your equipment has little to do with a good photo. It’s a lot like playing piano. Give a maestro a cheap piano and he will still be able to play a beautiful song. However, put me behind a Bechstein and you’ll be running for the hills. A camera is merely a tool. Having said that, it helps to work with quality tools. Photography is a fun hobby of mine and I am slowly trying to master the art, learning from other fine photographers as well as my own mistakes.

I was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in South Africa and now live in beautiful Australia, working as an IT Consultant in Brisbane. I immigrated to Australia in October 2007 and spent a couple of years in Melbourne before moving to the warmer climate of the Gold Coast. If you want to know more about me it’s probably best if I direct you to my other blog where I tell some stories of my experiences in this wonderful country. Since I started this blog I’ve been a little lazy to update the other one, but feel free to visit at MollersDownUnder.blogspot.com.

I can be contacted on rcmoller.blog@gmail.com.

Hope you enjoy and please leave a comment! 🙂
