My interest in photography was sparked 15 years ago when I bought an old Minolta Maxuum 35mm camera. While working on my Engineering Degree, photography was a creative outlet for me to capture visual impressions of people, places, light and time.
Photography became a serious endeavor when I began to travel abroad and see the big, wide world for what it was. The transition from hobby to occupation occurred after I had accumulated so much material that it seemed to gain a life of its own. I started to give away framed photographs as Christmas or Wedding presents to those hard-to-buy-for people. This led to filling request from friends and family for prints or to photograph events for them.
Although travel photography is still my main interest, my training and experience as a Drilling Engineer has encouraged and expanded my work as a photographer. It was a very natural progression to portray the oil industry through photography. This inside knowledge of the Oil Industry not only helps me get to places that most people don’t get to see, like the drill floor of a $700,000/day offshore rig, but also to keep my fingers and lenses out the place where they shouldn't be.
I am interested in hearing your thoughts about my photos, their mode of presentation, and anything else you might have to say about the site. Please send him a note at BSD@BSDPhotography.com.
