I live in South Africa, only an hour or so's drive from Kruger National Park. My photographic passions are wildlife and travel photography - I want my photos to look their very best. I live in an area with expensive and slow internet and objected to Adobe's increasing move to a cloud based product, I switched to Luminar at the end of 2017. Like many others I'm anxiously waiting for the release of the DAM, but am otherwise happy with my decision to make the move.
