Brief paragraph about yourself: Racing games and cars, things I have adored since I was 5 years old. Y'know, now that I look back at those days and see how far I've come, I feel I've succeeded in a lot of ways, some of which are hard to remember. One being me getting my first A in Grade 3. Now, back to car culture. My first gaming system was the Nintendo 64, got it for my 5th birthday, and the game which came with it was Re-Volt. A R/C racing game. I remember playing that game for hours on end. It was my favorite, and it made me a happy kid. I would then go on to get more games such as, Hot Wheels: Turbo Racing, Stunt Racer 64, Diddy Kong Racing and Ruch 2049. Then, in 2005, I got my Original Xbox for Xmas. It came with 2 games (as a bundle), Fusion Frenzy and none other than Forza Motorsport 1. This was my first encountering with the Forza Motorsport series. That game taught me A LOT. It taught me about horsepower, lateral G's, the different components of the engine, customization, etc. The list goes on! That game started molding me into who I am today, a car guru. Finally, in 2008, I got my Xbox 360 (also a bundle), but not with Forza 2. Actually, I don't have FM2 or even owned it. It wasn't until December 2009 that I got back into the Forza Motorsport series with FM3. I got the LCE version of the game, luckily, it was the last one FutureShop had. (Fhew!). This game taught me quite a bit as well, things such as photography, it gave me knowledge about different manufactures such as Bugatti, SSC, Ultima, Spada, etc. I got my first T10 pick's in FM3, 1 for Race/Replica design, and photography. Now, 2011, Forza 4. This game gave me even more of a chance in photography, well really, it gave me 2 HM's! Almost back to back too. Week 7 and Week 10. FM4 also brought me into the "creating you're own gallery" genre. This was a big chance for me to show everyone what I had learned, and what I was going to learn in the future. Thank you FM, for basically changing my life, and molding my life's path.

How long have you been an active Forzatographer? Since approximately February 2010. Started a gallery in about April - June 2011
Reasoning for diving into photomode: As stated below, E Mc Sq is solely the main reasoning behind me getting into Forzatography and the way I use photomode today. Before I really got into photomode, I checked out his SF in FM3 when he was on the T10 Picks. I was amazed! To me, he was the "God" of photomode. Soon after that, I became friends with him. He would then go on to teach me basics and advanced techniques for photomode, like the use of Aperture and Black & White photography. So, thanks to E Mc Sq for turning me into the forzatographer I am today.
Main sources of inspiration: E Mc Sq
