I see beauty all around me...

I’ve been carrying a camera of some sort ever since I was a kid. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie. I remember saving my money and making a special trip to the drugstore for a roll of film and then asking my mom or grandmother to cover the cost of developing… In high school I started shooting and editing video, then in college I started developing and printing my own b/w stills. I’ve been carrying a digital still camera since 2004. In 2013 I left a 20+ year job as a writer/shooter/editor/producer in broadcast television to shoot photography full time and I teach photography on the side.

I still shoot black-and-white and color film from time to time. I have a collection of cameras I use including a beat-up YashicaMat 124, Olympus Trip35, Pentax K1000, Polaroid 450 Land Camera and my daily camera, a Canon EOS 30D DSLR.

In the end, it’s not about the tools you use, it’s how you use those tools to fulfill your vision.

    I can't remember a time when I haven't been taking photographs. I started as a kid with a Kodak Brownie, progressed to a Pentax K1000 in college and in 2004 started shooting with a digital SLR.
