My name is Zach Doehler (a.k.a. Calibreus) and I am a 17 year old photographer from British Columbia, Canada. I love to take pictures of landscapes and nature. My favourite time of the day to shoot is sunrise/sunset. And I also really enjoy editing. I've made it my goal to bring out as much colour in my photos as I can, which I believe has allowed me to develop a unique look to my images.
I picked up my first real camera when I was 15 years old. I wanted to do astrophotography and I was told that I needed a dedicated camera in order to do so (something that would do a bit better of a job than my smartphone) . So I asked my parents if we had one and fortunately we had a 10 year old Canon Rebel with a kit lens in our house. I started shooting with that and over time developed a serious passion for photography.
Today, I can confirm that I've never had the same enjoyment in any other hobby as I do with photography. Being able to capture scenes no matter where I am and no matter what time of the year it is really brings me joy. I also appreciate travelling in a whole different light now than I did before photography. Each trip that I go on now is always an exciting and new experience. And it's incredible being able to bring home images from different places I've been to. I hope to one day be able to travel more often, especially as I get older.
Currently, I shoot with a Sony A7 and old film lenses. And I also started taking aerial photos in late 2017 when I purchased a used DJI Phantom 3 Pro. I don't have very much money I can spend freely on gear and trips. But I have been trying my best to support the hobby with the hobby. Therefore, the majority of the funds I make from photography goes directly back into it. So if you support my work, you are helping me to continue doing what I love!
