I began my love for photography when I enrolled in a 4-H photography project at age 8. I soon graduated from a 35mm Canon point-and-shoot to a 35mm Canon SLR camera, and began learning all about apertures and shutter speeds. By high school I was taking friend's senior photos, family portraits, developing my own film for the school newspaper, and working for a wedding photographer. It all just kept rolling from there.
I now classify myself as a serious amateur photographer, and have graduated from film to digital. I focus primarily on nature and still life photography; however, like most photographers, I enjoy stretching my creativity by dabbling in other areas!
My wife and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where the Rocky Mountains provide much more beauty than we have time to capture!
