I have always been a photographer, but it is not my full-time profession. I began with film and worked in the darkroom during high school and college, and now (many years later) shoot digital. I have started to work on my artistic and photographic skills more seriously in the past few years, and hope to continue to grow and inspire others with my artwork. I am motivated by many things around me - the light, the way things line up and when a composition comes together perfectly. Photography is a life-long love and I'm encouraged when I see what my fellow photographic artists are shooting and presenting to the world. Thank you for reviewing my images. I want to become a better photographer and artist so any direction is greatly appreciated.
