Who I am
I began photography while trying to take good photos of Opals. I cut and sold opal for several years, and it takes a lot of work to get good representative images of the gemstone. Later, I began to bring my camera to construction project sites, or to surf sessions. As time went on, I have honed my craft. I shoot both digital and film. A few years ago I began to work on some fine art photography as well. I enjoy learning about photography, carrying a camera with me, and talking to others who enjoy the art or those who enjoy the photos I have taken.
