My name is Justin Rae, I began taking pictures of landscapes while I was young and would accompany my Dad on backpacking and hiking adventures. After the advent of digital cameras I purchases a small Point and Shoot Canon SD450 in November of 2005 for a snowboarding trip in Colorado. As time progressed and I took more and more pictures where ever I'd go I started to notice pictures getting better and better content. Then I started to learn how to use the manual features on my camera to get a better shot of the content and subject of the photos. This pocket sized camera went every where with me. Literally. I purchased an underwater enclosure in 2007 and had no fear taking it any where I went whether it was the beach, the tops of mountains at 13,000 ft or the depths of the ocean around 60+ ft below. This camera accompanied myself and all the adventures of J Squared for 4 years and hundreds of diving expeditions. In September 2009 on a dive trip to Gennie Springs Florida condensation built up inside the underwater housing and zapped the camera. For the next couple months borrowed a Canon Powershot A1100. In November of 2009 I purchased the Canon Rebel T1i kit and addition 250mm lens. The increased power and ability to get the shot I want and could never get with a point and shoot is amazing!
