I canít remember a time in my life where photography didn't capture my interest. You could say it started with my years in Vietnam. Through the lens of my camera, i saw a different world played out before me that words alone cannot describe. My fascination with film, and capturing images I never wanted to loose, I knew that this was a start of a love affair. Experiencing what I had seen firsthand, and being able to transition the images through film was an inspiration to do more, see more.
The birth of my son really took this love for photography to the next level. There wasn't a moment of his life that my wife and I didn't capture. His first steps, his falls, the mishaps that every parent takes a shot of. I know that my son wishes I didn't have the embarrassing pictures of his mom giving him a bath in the sink. We all have them.
I switched to digital in 2001 and have never looked back. The digital era has made my love for photography really grow, and expand my horizons. More so that i ever thought possible.
I have had numerous commendations throughout the years, and my work displayed through private and public venues. My collection is available online at www.andphotos.net. Although photography is not a career, it has been a love and passion in my life, and has brought me the happiness that most people don't get to experience in a lifetime.
