digital point-and-shoot

I purchased this camera from a mall kiosk in Denmark, when my previous camera broke while traveling. So for me, this was always a travel camera. It was absolutely fantastic as a travel camera, but once I got back home I never touched the thing. I took it on a few more trips, until I started demanding more from my travel cameras, and eventually stopped using it entirely. But I still look back at the photos I took using this camera and am amazed at how much I still like them. There's something to be said for taking photos all day every day.

Here are some of my favorite photos shot using this camera.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
