Just your average UPS big rig loader by night, and shop tech for an IT company by day who enjoys photography in his spare time.

I think photography helps people in many ways, not just as an artistic outlet, but as a means to generate appreciation and respect for natural beauty, patience, and attention to detail as a whole.

I love digital photography but recently I have being doing 35mm film photography. I love the look of film and the completely different photographic mindset that comes with it. I'm amazed at the fact that film inscribes by way of light the world onto a piece of chemical coated material, which then takes on the shape and color of the world. Because these cameras work by way of chemistry, it makes photography much more physical.

For me, photography is many, many things, but the thing I love most about it is that often it allows for people to see things their eyes literally cannot pick up.
