My love of photography started as a teenager in the late 70's when I picked up my father's camera. I soon converted a bathroom into a black and white darkroom to learn to develop my own prints. In time I progressed to making color slides and prints of the Painted Desert area of Northern Arizona, which is where I was living at the time. As I entered my twenties my interest in other things led me away from photography. Nearly 20 years had passed when the spark was rekindled.
In 2006 I picked up my first quality digital camera and fell in love with photography all over again. By 2009 I was back in full force relearning the skills that had gotten rusty during my time away from the camera. I am excited by the new tools and techniques available to today's photographers. I enjoy the process of producing quality photos of differing subjects and I tend to concentrate on unusual subjects or perspectives. There is so much to learn and explore behind the lens that I want to try it all... except portraits. I don't do people.
