Photography has been Peter Theobald’s hobby since 2000. He started with point and shoot cameras. He took it up seriously in 2012 when he bought his first DSLR and started with wildlife photography. He also dabbled in macro photography, street photography, a bit of portraits and then settled down into landscape photography. Gradually his interests changed focus from the technical aspects to the creative aspects of photography. Consequently he has sold off most of his high-end photographic gear and nowadays mostly shoots with his entry level DSLR in Auto-mode (He lost his point-and-shoot camera), or with his mobile phone. He does not take part in any photographic competitions and his photos are not published in magazines and they do not win any awards, but he enjoys his photography
His other interests are yoga and natural health
