I could say it all started back on my 7th birthday when my Mom and Dad got me my first camera, a Kodak Brownie Starmatic. And while it is true that I was the proud recipient of that wonderful camera on that day, it is only recently that my passion for photography has been unleashed. It was another gift of a most amazing camera from my generous love… the one who believes in me and all my passions. I am humbled by the truly gifted and extraordinary photographers out there that I emulate and who’s artistic gifts I could only hope to achieve, but, my desire to learn and grow with this satisfying hobby is unstoppable. So, bear with me as I start this photographic journey. Advise me, instruct me, critique me and watch me as I begin to look at the world through new lenses.
