Cameras attracted Evan’s attention at a young age from when he claimed his mothers old Instamatic Camera (the Polaroid was forbidden!) through to High School when he sacrificed his takeaway spending to buy a big new SLR (back in the dark old days of film). Jump forward a couple of decades & digital has renewed those early desires. Now Photography has reasserted itself and he has been busily getting familiar with the DSLR format. Evan has his sights firmly set on the growing Gay Marriage market and other related events out there in our community.
