As far as photography is concerned, I have been interested in it since a very young age. I had a little yellow Crayola 35mm camera when I was young. It had a forest green case with a yellow zipper. I took pictures of anything and everything. We had a good relationship (unlike height and I).
I took my first photography course in Grade 7 where I learned a lot of the technical side of photography. We used Asahi Pentax cameras and did our own darkroom processing. I took every photography course offered as I progressed through middle school and high school. I used my dad's old Minolta X700 35mm camera, which I still use as my film camera today.
In 2006, I decided that it was time to make the switch to digital. I was spending a lot of money on film and developing, which I decided was not worth it. I bought a Nikon D50 and I could not have been happier. These days, I have a Nikon D80 and I love it.
A geologist by training and profession, I see beyond the landscape itself. I see the history and story of the landscape, how it formed and the forces that shaped it.
I have worked in a professional capacity in the past, shooting weddings, concerts, studio shots, real estate, et cetera. I've had my work published in various places, both in print and online, and I've sold my photos to multinational corporations for use in advertising.
