As a young boy, I received my first camera from my Grandmother as a present while traveling with her to Yellowstone National Park. The love for photography was born as I snapped photos of different animals and landscapes through out the trip. Patience was hard virtue to learn as I waited for the film to be developed from my local drugstore, but excitement was shown as I received the finished product. Technology has advanced over the years and so has desire to take the 'perfect' photo. With inspiration from friends I took photography to a new level when I bought my first dslr camera. New lens' followed shortly with a desire to learn. I am an amateur photographer with a love for adventure and a desire to capture the world as I see it.
