I can't really remember a time when I wasn't interested in photography. I have evolved from film to digital as technology changes and have moved from portrait to wild life to street photography. Depending on the use of the photo I will work with it as a straight shot with minimum adjustments to an artistic work where creativity takes over sometimes using multi-media techniques as well. Though I do have a M.S. degree in Education, I am basically self-taught in photography. Workshops have helped me in my development as a photographer. Challenging myself gives me the drive to improve my style, technique and creative outlook.
