I am a legal secretary by day and an amateur photographer in my spare time. I am self-taught for the most part, but would like to further to my knowledge, skills and experience. I first fell in love with photography in high school after getting my first point & shoot camera, and eventually wanted to attend college for photography (my dream being to work for National Geographic taking photos and traveling). Alas, that did not happen (hence the legal secretary career); however, I bought myself a Nikon D90 for Christmas 2009 and haven't given up on my passion for photography. I take most of my pictures while traveling and enjoy learning about new cultures, places, history and people -- and definitely love to make new friends along the way! I enjoy landscape/nature, wildlife and architecture photography the most. I always feel at home behind a camera and love to show people how I view the world.
