I am a self-taught photographer who enjoys experimenting with unusual subjects, unique perspectives, and capturing images that others may overlook. I realized my passion for photography rather late in life, overcoming my own internal voice (and the voices of others) telling me that I was too old to learn it, that it was too late. I learned that indeed it was not too late, that we can learn anything we have the will to learn no matter our stage in life. And that it was worth it, and has changed my life in remarkable ways to realize that I can capture images that will last forever and can never be duplicated. I am always seeking something different and rare to photograph. I often look for vintage items in flea markets and antique stores around the country that cannot be duplicated and incorporate them into my photography. I enjoy re-purposing these items into images that can be enjoyed by future generations.
