My journey as a photographer has been almost 20 years in the making. It began with the gift of my first SLR camera, an Olympus OM-1 that had been used by and then given to me by my uncle Cary. It helped me understand the fundamentals of photography and given that It was completely manual, forced me to not only consider composition, but also focus, depth of field and light metering with every shot. I continued to use this camera until 2005 when I purchased my first digital SLR camera.
I have a special appreciation for things that people pass without notice and I try to find a unique way of presenting at those things in each of my photographs.
