A new camera to improve on my passion!

Growing up as the son of an incredible landscape photographer, Bill Fliris, I had inherited a great sense of adventure. Up until recently, I realized that I also loved capturing the moments that i witness when out exploring and serching for new things. I bought by first DSLR camera early into 2014. It has drastically changed the way I look at the world and I take it everywhere with me. I'm constantly online learning more about DSLR photography and teaching myself myself new tricks. When my father passed, I inherited these really awesome lens and gave gotten some pretty impressive pictures with them, but soon realized that this lower end DSLR I bought is limiting me on what I could capture with these lens.

What I am trying to get is a Canon 5D Mark III. It is a top of the line Canon DSLR and will open up a world of possibilities for me in photography.

At the moment, I can't justify spending the money on the new camera with a baby on the way and also a new house for my family. With all this going on, I'd still like to improve my skills on photography because as it seems, with the proper equipment, the possibilities are endless.

After a quick review on Facebook, I realized that I have some support and it may be quite possible that I can get this camera, and I would like to give back by continuing to share my pictures with anyone who cares to enjoy them. I've never had much interest making this a business and selling my photos as it's alot more enjoyable to have it as a hobby and allow people to view for free. As I have done before, instead of selling a picture, I'd give them the digital file and let them print it in anyway that they would like, as long as it has my watermark.

I'm not expecting huge donations because if you think about it, even at 10 dollar donations, it would only take 350 people to get me there.

If my goal of 3500 is not met, any money that I do receive will still only be put towards getting this camera!

Work that I've done so far can be seen on my personal Facebook page, my new page "Photography By Jesse Fliris" or "@jessefliris" on Instagram.

Please help me reach my goal so I can continue learning this art of photography and I will continue to share what I see. Thank you!
