I began doing photography in the early 1980's when I used my first tax returns to get my first camera (a Canon AE-1 with the 50 mm lens that came with it). The following year I was able to add a Canon 70-210 mm zoom and then a 28 mm lens (I only recently sold this first gear). After that I took my first photography course in college. Years later I took several more courses at a college 2/3 of the way across the country from where I grew up and near Yellowstone National Park. Following my move across country in 1988, I began taking short courses at the Yellowstone institute in Yellowstone National Park and that really sparked my interest in becoming a nature photographer. Several people advised against it saying that I could never make a living at it. unfortunately I took their advice and went into a different field, but photography is my passion and I have been doing it as a serious hobby ever since. I am glad that microstock sites like dreamstime have given me the opportunity to sell my images without having to invest in office staff. I will use any income to buy more and better gear. I really need a couple of flashes, a digital microscope, and I need a replacement for my 30D (since not all the images come out to be 3 MB that are required for upload at dreamstime), and a new camera that can make phone calls (instead of the phone that can take pictures). I want to use this experience as a way to push me to take more pictures more often and to improve my photography at a faster rate.
