Graduated business school in 1997, was an army sergeant, commander of Pansret Maskin Kanon M/92, by December 1998, served with my regiment, in Viborg, until December 1999 (a company of draftees) when we were released into civilian life. I enlisted in the danish international brigade before leaving, and went on a couple of exercises, before leaving for New Zealand in 2003, to learn to fly helicopters. I trained at Ardmore helicopters, in south Auckland, and absolutely freakin' LOVED flying the Hughes 300. What a great little helicopter that is!
Alas, 'twas not to be, and 6 months into my training, I was nearly killed in a car accident, while riding shotgun, on the way to a cinema, somewhere in Auckland.
I then found a hobby, that I really have always been fascinated by, photography. Although I started, not with photography per se, my affection for 3D CGI, and the lack of decent background photos for renderings, lead me to invest in a Nikon CoolPix 8800, and from then I was hooked.
I bought my first DSLR in 2004-ish, a Nikon D50 and loved that I could buy other lenses to get different effects, something my CP8800, couldn't because it had a non-exchangable lens (with massive 10x optical zoom though, and another 4x digital to top it off).
I've since upgraded to a D300, about 5-6 years ago, from a D50, to D70s, to D5100, to D200.
I recently upgraded to a D800! Woohoo :D
Monday, september 25th 2017, I start work at an autodetailer. This has been another hobby of mine since 2011-12 or so. I am very much looking forward to that.
