Why do we take photographs? Some take photos to preserve memories. Others for posterity. While a few of us take photos for love, inspiration, bliss, or beauty. No matter what your reasons are, it all boils down to one goal– to memorialize… to remember… remember when we cannot anymore. And in order to do that, of course you need a camera.
Hello and welcome to Continental Camera! The ultimate online platform for shutterbugs and pro photographers.
I’m Richard Casey. You can call me Ric. I’m a professional events photographer and the man behind Continental Camera.
Since you’re here, I know you would agree that the camera is one of the most important inventions in the 19th century. Aside from the fact that taking pictures have been my bread and butter since I was a photojournalist for my high school campus paper, it is my passion to take photos that speak to the soul. Photos that agitate people, make them laugh, uncomfortable, or sad. I’m all for photographs that make people “feel something”. That is why I went into photojournalism for 6 years and later into lifestyle and events photography.
Of course, for you to become a successful photographer, it isn’t just talent that you need but the right equipment. And finding the right camera for you can be a tough one, especially if you want to level up your photography career.
Here in Continental Camera, you’ll find the best camera buying guides as well pro photography tips and hacks to widen your repertoire.
It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out, or if you are doing it for a gig, or if you are working for glossy magazines and been taking pictures of high-profiled personalities. What matters is the heart you put into your craft and a good camera to invest in.
