I have been interested in the art of photography as long as I can remember. Dabbled in photography in school and through college. After college I joined the United States Marine Corps and became interested in specializing in travel photography. After completing military service, I opened my own company called Studio Sky Aerial Photography, and specialized in industrial aerials for a large timber company. After 18 years in business and the use of GPS becoming more popular, we closed the door on our company.
I became interested in digital imagery after its popularity increased and now use digital cameras almost all the time. I mostly specialize in scenery images and some wildlife photography.
I also maintain a web presence at www.manninggalleries.com and I create fine gravestone images for Find a grave website.
