A Little Bit About Me

I wasn’t the type who said, ‘I want to be a photographer when I grow up’. Like most, I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. My photography started like most others with the need to document family events and vacations. All that time owning nothing more than a decent point and shoot camera. But it was on one of those family vacations that I made a decision. I recall it vividly. I was with my family at Walt Disney World. I took my point and shoot camera and a cheap tripod to a location known for getting the best view of the nightly Magic Kingdom fireworks. There I was with a point and shoot camera on top of a flimsy tripod when a professional photographer set up next to me with the best camera, tripod and lens money could buy. His lens cap cost more than my entire setup. I was mildly embarrassed and we both laughed about it but it was a wake up call for me. It was then that I realized that I enjoy photography too much to be limited by my equipment. Shortly after getting home from that vacation, I upgraded my equipment and haven’t looked back. Since that time I’ve taken this art form very seriously. Reading, watching videos, attending seminars, talking with other photographers, but most of all, taking pictures. “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.” ~ Ansel Adams. This is the component I continuously try to improve. Please have a look around and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks for visiting!
