50 something amateur photographer who loves taking and making images. I work as a Senior Disability Claims Consultant for a major insurance company, but photography is my passion. I love to travel and do a lot of landscape photography. I also have my own studio so I do a lot of family portraits. In 2012, I hope to challenge myself significantly so I can grow and learn. My training sources are Kelby Training, The Perfect Picture School of Photography, and Lynda.com. I love the work of so many great photographers like Joe McNally, Joe Sarte, Rick Sammon, Scott Kelby, Trey Ratcliff, Bryan Peterson, Ben Long and so many others. Anyone can take a photograph, I mean pressing the shutter button is easy. BUT, taking an image as an artist is really difficult. While much of the work involves training, much of an artist is within. There are so many really good photographers out there. I admire their work and wish I could be so talented like them.
