“I like the creative aspect of photography. I started in photography by developing and processing film in high school. I liked the magic of seeing an image slowly appear on paper in the darkroom. After high school graduation, I pursued other interests. When I got married and we went on our honeymoon to the Canadian Rockies, I started shooting again. I then realized how much I loved it. I kept pushing myself (and still do) to make better and better images -- technically and artistically. By doing something I love, it will never feel like work!”
