I was asked one time if photography was just a hobby or way of life for me --- oh that's so easy , it's a way of life , I am so energized through my pictures , it's spiritual, peaceful, uplifting - it's in my soul ... I am thankful , so very thankful and blessed ... I pray that others find their 'photography' their peace to live and share with others ... when I say 'photography' I am saying 'gift' that fulfills one's life and spirit so they can share God's love with others ...
My photography journey began 40 years ago with an old Brownie camera. I am still learning and experiencing wonderful beauty and excitement to share through my photographs. I am thankful and so very blessed with this ability and look forward to sharing God's beauty with many of you through this site.
I grew up in Beaver Falls, a small steel mill town in southwestern Pennsylvania where I desired to do more in photography. I started working in a photo store to earn enough to buy my first 35 mm camera so I could shoot high school sports. I then went on to get a Photography degree at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. While in high school and college I learned graphic arts and design, as well as, sculpture, painting and public relations. I loved doing sports photography and was fortunate enough to take some great shots of old Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.
As I am getting older my interest has changed to photographing nature, flowers, animals, birds, butterflies, sunrises and sunsets, as these are all part of God's beauty for us to enjoy and share.
