In recent years, Zach has really expressed an interest in photography.
He likes being the “official photographer” for taking pics of Rob and me.
The past couple of weeks he has done a photography camp and really, really enjoyed it.
So much so, that he got all gung ho about the idea of buying his own DSLR.
Which he has done.
Last year, he saved almost all of his birthday, Christmas and work (babysitting) and allowance money. He didn’t really want to buy anything, so put it in his bank account. This year, he has also saved some birthday money and allowance money. But he finally found what he wanted to spend it on.
I have to admit, a 13 year old spending that much money made me a bit nervous. But, it’s his money, and I think it is a great investment, given how much he loves travel and photography.
So tonight, just hours after getting his new camera, he took us on a little photography shoot.
Here are the results. Not bad for the first photography shoot for a 13 year old! (and no editing)
And the photographer himself:
