My Origin Story
 

Through my early years,

my father was an avid photographer with a Canon AE-1.

As life does, it got busy and the hobby fell by the wayside.

I vividly remember the whole of his darkroom in our basement

sitting in boxes collecting dust...

If only I knew then, what I know now.

For my 10th-ish birthday,

I was gifted a Kodak Fisher Price 110 film camera.

I would load film after film and take pictures galore.

Unfortunately, none have stood the test of time.

If only I knew then, what I know now.

After my own family was built and broke and built again,

I picked up the hobby with a Canon 30D.

Through life’s ups and downs,

the cameras came and went.

Once the hobby became a permanent facet of my life,

I landed in the outlying world of Sony.

And there I remain.

From abandoned building adventures

and planning photography group outings,

to fungi madness and landscapes and moonscapes,

my photography has thoroughly evolved.

And here I stand.

These days,

photography is all about the experience.

If an image comes out of the adventure

that I find warrants sharing,

that is an awesome bonus and a gift.

There is no greater compliment

than when others love what you love creating.

Thank you.

For me,

photography is a chance to be present in the moment,

intimately and passionately connecting with our world, 

fully and deeply appreciating the experience.

I am thankful for the opportunities I am given

and try not to take anything for granted.

A lesson I am still learning myself

and one I am trying to share out into the universe.

 

Be better. Do better. Love better.
