My Junior year as a Graphic Arts major at Pratt Institute I was required to purchase a camera and take Photography 101. Since I might have taken a dozen photographs at that point in my life with my fathers camera I had no interest in taking this course. To my surprise, by the middle of the semester I was hooked and have been ever since.
It has become my profession, my life diary, my salvation as well as my sanity on numerous occasions. There is a lesson somewhere in this story.
