Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I was first introduced to photography as a child. At age 10, I received my first camera, a Polaroid point and shoot which I used during family outings and trips. My Grandfather taught me a lot about taking photos, composition, lighting, etc. and I have fond memories of our various photo shoots together.
Through my school years, I continued with photography. In high school, I served on the school newspaper both as a journalist and as a photographer. I also took photography classes and was given special project assignments. As a result, I spent alot of time in the photo lab not only working on my art, but, teaching as well.
I'm mostly self taught and a vast majority of my images come from experiences, experimentation, feelings, and things I have learned over the years. I draw inspiration from the things around me. I utilize the natural light and rarely use flash photography. I enjoy black and white, color, cyan, and sepia photography. I think they all have interesting and unique characteristics. I equally enjoy macro photography and landscape photography. I also enjoy taking an image and reworking it with photo editing programs as the possibilities are endless. With each modification, a new interpretation is born.
I have been published in The Salal Review, a publication of Lower Columbia Community College in Longview, WA. I have also been published in several calendars for the local Columbia River People's Utility District in Oregon.
I am currently a member of the Monticello Camera Club, Longview, WA.
