Thank you for visiting my website! My love for photography began as a child. My first photo adventure was going to the National Museum of the Air Force when I was 9 or 10 years old. I shot all the 110 film I'd brought with me, then bought all could afford from the gift shop. It took me weeks to save up enough to get them all developed (aahhh digital). I found the pictures again a few years ago. The pictures were nothing spectacular, but I'll never forget the rush I got taking them. And the feeling I was somewhere special, capturing moments I never wanted to forget. Jump ahead to high school where I took my first photography class and learned about exposure, composure, and developing. After that I got away from serious photography until July of 2010. My father got a fancy new camera, a Nikon D90, and I had to have one too. I tried out a lot of lower grade equipment, I started with a D3000, before learning the reasons why the pro grade stuff cost soooo much. There really is a huge difference. But then I hit another wall. Even though my gear was good, I couldn't get all the shots I was trying for. My dad was having similar issues, and we discovered a local photography school, Light Photographic Workshops. And the rest, as they say, is history. Not really, but I did learn how to fully use my camera and have continued to work to be a better photographer ever since. I am fortunate to live in an area filled with great places to shoot, and to have friends and family that are so supportive of my work.
