Payton Braun got his first camera for his 8th birthday, and right away realized this was what he loved doing, when not playing hockey, of course! In August 2014, he got his first DSLR camera; a Canon EOS Rebel T5. As soon as he got it, he brought it almost everywhere and treasured it more than anything he had.
For his 12th birthday, in November 2014, he got the best birthday present an amateur photographer could ever ask for: a macro lens. He immediately started finding new angles and getting up close to bugs and flowers. Although he is an all-around photographer, he specializes in flowers and close-ups.
