Health & Fitness to Photography

I originally started ‘The M Effect’ website in October 2012, as a forum to encourage both my readers and myself, to embark on and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The Imire Rhino, Zimbabweweekly schedule of posts forced me to keep up to date with health and fitness trends and also provided me with ample encouragement to “practice what I preached”.

My initial articles were made up almost entirely, of narrative and were devoid of illustrations. It did not take me long, however, to realize that images are a vital component of any health and fitness website and improve reader appeal significantly. So I purchased a quality DSLR camera and started to add photos to my posts. Before I knew it, I had, developed a passion for photography and the rest is history.

So what type of images will you expect to see on this site? I recently read that there are over one hundred different categories and sub-categories of photography. Many photographers, and particularly those who are well known, specialise in one particular category or area of photography. I, on the other hand, prefer not limit myself to a single subject or genre but rather, to capture what happens to take my mood at that particular moment. I am particularly interested in landscapes, nature and night photography but my passion extends well beyond these areas.

I invite you to join me on my photographic journey, as I strive to capture that one perfect shot.
