This is going to age me. My first camera was not on my phone. My first camera, a Polaroid, has gone the way of the Dodo, along with my old rotary phone.
I've lived through a few generations of what it means to be a photographer, but can honestly say I didn't really focus on my work until I had grown children. I didn't think about becoming a professional photographer. It's much too fun to be an actual job, right?
I’ve been an artist throughout my life; I’ve enjoyed photography, painting, colored pencil and pastel artwork. Expanding into digital art, my photographic style comes through an artist’s perspective.
I believe in encouraging others to be photographers and artists. The world needs its dreamers. Creative souls are nourished here. If you want to know how I do something, I'm happy to teach you.
I'm far too adventurous for my daughter's comfort. My son thinks I listen to music far too loudly. I dance when I'm happy. I speak my mind. I'm a hugger.
I wander alone happily. I like my own company and being able to hear my own thoughts. I love the sound the wind makes blowing through the trees.
There's more, of course. If you want to know, just ask!
