Photography has been my passion in life for as long as I can remember. Over the past twenty years, I have been creating photographic images, both professionally and artistically. I also have a B.F.A in photography. The first camera I ever purchased was a 35mm single lens reflex camera that took me an entire summer of weeding strawberry plants at a local farm to be able to afford. A lot has changed since then, and I have owned numerous camera systems from 35mm- Large Format. None of my previous equipment has affected the photographic experience for me as much as the Digital SLR I purchased a few years back. Since converting from film to digital, I have found that the immediate nature of digital photography has drastically changed the way I approach my subjects and has enabled me to view, share, and print my images in a completely new way. In addition to photography, I am passionate about the outdoor experience. Twice a year I head out to the great outdoors and go backpack camping, hiking and of course, landscape/nature photography.
