I fell in love with photography in the 70's, while in college, pursuing a career in Advertising and Design. I was formally introduced to photography at this time. I remember that I used to use my mom's old Kodak camera, a lot, as a child. After working in the photo lab in school, experiencing different techniques in 35mm, I was hooked. I later graduated to digital, when that became popular, and I was able to do my own editing again, like in the dark room. Well, hooked again, this time on digital photography. My passion was dealing with nature, and I developed an eye, for photographing it. The Lord blessed me with a gift that I just had to share. After retirement from my previous career, I went back to my photography during my retirement. Now I can share my gift with the world, and place smiles on peoples faces. My photography "eye" has captured the spirit and souls of so many, and now I am able to display it.
