I first used a "professional" camera when I was in Middle School and have been hooked ever since. Once my father patiently showed me how to adjust the settings on a 35mm camera, I spent the next few years shooting every day and spending hours in the darkroom learning what my camera could do. Since then, I have worked in photo labs, camera sales, and as a photographer, giving me a broad knowledge base of not just taking pictures, but of the entire process. In my ten plus years of photography experience, I have worked freelance for weddings and events, publication, websites, camera sales, a photo editing, digital restoration, and as a hobbyist. My experience covers a broad range of events and subject matter. I love the diversity that I have had the opportunity to capture.
