I got started in photography from having many friends who were learning about it. After being the one to hold their lenses and set up their equipment for so long, I began to learn a lot about cameras and the mechanics behind them. When they all went off to college I realized no one was taking pictures around me any more. My solution was to save up money, buy a camera, and put to practice all I had learned from my friends. Throughout the years of continuous practice I have gained a great amount of knowledge and continue to learn everyday. It is a joy to be able to capture a frozen moment in time for friends and loved ones to cherish as the years pass by.
