I've always loved taking pictures, and I'm constantly inspired and awed by all of the incredible photos being created and presented out there. I've had the privilege of personally knowing some really great photographers who encouraged me and given me some great insight into the craft.

Sometime in 2010, I decided I had had enough of being an "accidental" photographer (one that only gets great shots "by accident") to a more knowledgeable, deliberate one. I've been kinda-sorta obsessed with it ever since!

I welcome any feedback or criticism of my work. Tell me it's bad if you think so! But tell me why, and how I could have done it better. I can only grow from constructive criticism.

I am currently shooting with a Canon 70D, and these three lenses:

- Canon EF-S 24-105 F4 L IS
- Canon EF 50mm F1.4
- Tamron 10-24mm

I also love my iPhone 4! I use it as an always-with-me camera far more than I use it for a phone, and I'm very happy with the results!
