I have been involved in photography since receiving my first camera for Christmas as a thirteen year old. Although much of my work is still-life and landscape, I am not exclusively tied to it. My philosophy is that if something catches your eye, take the picture. You might only have that one opportunity in life to capture that particular image. Don't tell yourself you will come back another time...you rarely do. And remember, one need not agree with others' notion of what constitutes art. Hemingway put it another way, "No subject is terrible if the story is true..."
