Meet the Flickrs - meet ng.kelven

Am heutigen Sonntag, das letzte Flickr Meetup ist schon etwas her, möchte ich gerne ng.kelven vorstellen. Er kommt aus Vancouver, Canada und wurde von meinem letzten Bloggast _Arshia_ vorgeschlagen. Hier nun ein kleiner Einblick in seine Fotos und seinen Flickr-Account - viel Spaß!

Q: Give us a Quick description of yourself and where you come from and what you do outside the flickr life? A: I live in the great white north in Vancouver, Canada. As for what I do, I am a chartered accountant. Outside of work though, photography, hockey, and eating are three of my greatest passions!

Q: How did you meet Flickr the first time? A: I think it was through a link to a picture that was hosted here...

Q: At what age you got started with photography? And why? A: I started using a digital slr about 1.5 years ago. My friend had a Canon XS and the picture he took with his 50mm f1.8 just stunned me. I didn't think that the picture quality and depth of field could come out so different compared to a point and shoot. Since then, I got my own and haven't looked back!

Q: What are the main reasons for your interest in photography? A: I have always been intrigued with design and I like things that look good aesthetically. That interest translated into an interest in web design, photography, and design products (unfortunately making me a bit of a stickler for brand names).

Q: What Equipment you are using? A: Good thing you weren't asking which gear I have used... I currently have a Canon 5D Mark II (far beyond my skill level) for a body and my lenses consist of: Canon 35mm F1.4 L Canon 135mm F2.0 L Carls Zeiss 21mm F2.8 ZE Distagon

Q: Whats your favorite Lens? A: Hard to say, I love all three. My 35mm is my most used though because of its versatility and focal length. I am a depth of field guy though... so the F1.4 helps in that regard.

Q: Can you name your favourite photographer? Maybe a famous one? A: I am not in tune with famous photographers around the world, so my favorite photographers are those contacts that I have on flickr. There are some amazingly talented photographers here (many of which are professional already).

Q: whats your favourite contact on flickr? And why? A: That is a tough question because I have a few that I follow very closely. If I had to name a few that I follow on a day to day basis and are always a source of inspiration I would say... Callissa, Pavicha, _Arshia_, and isayx3.

Q: Have you got any real-life friends using flickr? A: Not anyone that I knew before flickr. Since using flickr though, there are some contacts that I would consider a friend and wouldn't hesitate to hang out with on a photowalk or grabbing a cup of coffee.

Thanks a lot for the interesting interview and many greets to Canada :)
