In 2009 Toby started a twitter account with the hope of answering any and all camera and photography questions the world threw at him.
Soon, he realized that creating helpful content was a far better way to reach people than simply waiting for questions. In 2014 he left his full-time job to run this channel and associated blog, Facebook page and Twitter.
Toby's goal is simple: He wants to help you be a better photographer by helping you find the gear you need and the know-how to use it.
