About me:

To continue to learn and improve my photographic skills with whatever equipment I am currently blessed to have. It is my belief that it is not the equipment that makes the photographer. Great photographs can be made with whatever equipment is in the hands of a great photographer. I'm not there yet and may never achieve "greatness" but it's still my goal.
