I remember sitting in a cafe on Market Street in San Francisco 30 years ago, with a photography book and a 20-year old Fujica camera wondering how I could make my living as a photojournalist. I'd just graduated college with a degree in International Studies and all I wanted to do was travel the world, take pictures and immerse myself in other cultures. Well, I never got there, instead finding myself in the corporate world. Now, as I start to emerge from that life and enter those 'golden' years, I've taken up photography again, this time with a more mature confidence and a greater sense of myself, the world, and what I want to express.
I enjoy waking up early and reveling in whatever the sunrise brings. I love photographing people and catching those fleeting moments that tug at our emotions. I get a thrill out of photographing a deer, or a bird, a fox or a hawk. I see reflections where I never did before, and I've had the time of my life capturing photos of a rock concert. I just love being able to anticipate a moment, to see a story unfold and to be able to capture and share it.
