I remember the afternoon my mother and father gave me my first real SLR camera. It was in 1975. That gift cemented my love of photography. Photography grew as I did. Inspired by teachers, family, friends, professionals… I was trusted by those who allowed me to take their images. Now photography lives within me, looking at colors, seeing the lighting, waiting for the moment to click and say, “thank you.” Photography is a joy. Always changing and expanding. I don’t know where it will take me, but I am ready for the next adventure.
