Just a geek with a camera.
I started in photography when I was 13. I had my father's Pentax 35mm SLR and a 50mm lens. That camera made me aware of what it was like to take pictures and have the skill to do it well. Upon reaching High School, I joined the year book staff to take pictures. By the end of my junior year, I had already taken and developed thousands of photos. I was hooked.
Upon entering college, I stopped. Film was expensive, and development cost even more. It was not until 2001 and the adoption of my first digital camera that I got back into photography.
Today, I take my camera with me everywhere. I can’t remember everything, so the camera has become my means of reflection.
For those who are interested, here is the obligatory camera gear list.
And lets not forget, a supportive wife who allows me to have an expensive second career/pseudo-hobby. I think she looks at it as a way for me to get out of the house and stay out of trouble.
