Born in the late 70’s and raised in Missouri and North Carolina, I did not find photography until i was 21 or so. I had broken my film point and shoot camera and then purchased a Minolta Film SLR. I think it was the Minolta Xsi. An entry level piece. After messing up plenty of film, and thinking i should get better at photography, I read a few books, took a nature photography course through Wake Tech, and worked with several wonderful photographers through out Cary and Raleigh NC. After that i attended the photography dept at the School of Hard Knocks.
Now i have spent the last ten years working on my craft, working in the photo Industry with Wolf Camera and Now Peace Camera. I feel very comfortable shooting any subject on location or in my studio. While at Peace Camera several opportunities have opened up for me. I have ventured out in to Photography Tutoring which grew in to starting a Photography Work Shop series.
Working with people and helping them discover what more they can do with their cameras has been very rewarding. I enjoy seeing the light in their eyes get brighter when a topic clicks in their minds. It really is quite enjoyable.
