Dad was an advanced amateur photographer (among his many other technical skills and interests) and it inspired me at the age of 4 to ask for a camera. I have been seeing the world (quite literally) through a camera lens ever since (sometimes to my wife's distress). I love to capture moments and scenes that will never again happen quite the same way. I constantly wonder how EVERYTHING looks through a lens.
No formal photography training other than a 6 week class in tenth grade high school, otherwise I am completely self-taught. I have always been an information sponge and read everything I can find about whatever subject it is that I am currently studying until I know more about it than most people. If I am interested in something, I must know everything that there is to know about it, and if my questions are still not answered, then I will become the authority on that subject and find the answers to then share with others.
I have traveled the world and seen many wonderful things, many of which I have captured for others to see. I love to share my experiences with others.
