While many photographers are drawn to the creative elements of the craft, my initial fascination was with gadgetry — lenses to lights—I love all the gear!
I'll always have an affinity for cool tech toys, however, my photography passion is fueled by all facets of 'people photography'. I especially enjoy talking to strangers to learn what we inevitably have in common.
> I run for fun (and medals and t-shirts): four marathons, several half marathons. I'm learning that my age is inversely proportional to the distance my joints are willing to endure.
> The 4-wheeled love of my life is 'Liesl' my 1960 VW Beetle
> There is a growing list of movies I've never seen: Star Wars, ET, Harry Potter, Frozen...
> Music by The Dave Matthews Band or Michael Jackson makes the world a better place
As a dedicated student of the craft, I am inspired by the incredible work of the following photographers and teachers (partial list).
