A few nights ago I was introduced to the work of Nirrimi. After reading her bio, I was floored to discover this photographer hasn’t even lived two decades yet and has already shot major campaigns for companies like Diesel and Billabong.

Everyone knows “that” guy or girl who should have stuck with a point and shoot when picking out their camera. From the gear head to the overly enthusiastic “artist,” Youtubers DSLRnoidea have a little fun with the type of people who really weren’t meant to own a dslr.
Nothing is more disheartening to me than waking up on a day of a location shoot to find it is raining outside. What was supposed to be a fun day of shooting photos turns into a day on the couch, browsing the web, and having a movie marathon of the same old DVDs.
