Photography has always been a big part of my life. My dad built a darkroom for me in the wood shed out behind our house in Mableton Georgia. I equipped it with a kit I purchased from a local camera store. The only prints I could make at first were contact prints. During High School I worked as the staff photographer on the yearbook and I also helped with the yearbook at my summer job, Six Flags Over Georgia.
I studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta under the guide of photographers such as Dennis Darling. During my college years I worked for studios shooting wedding events, the Miss National Teenager Pageant and doing some freelance photography for the AP. After college, I worked at Meisel Photochrome and Meteor Photo in Atlanta as a printer, photo composition technician and digital comp technician through these shops I have been blessed with meeting and talking to many artists in the south east.
I have moved on now and am a Network Administrator, thanks to my experiences with digital imaging gained through the conversion from traditional photo to digital in the labs I worked for.
To me photography is a fun hobby that I enjoy as often as I can. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy making them.
