My passion for photography began at a young age watching my father at work. My father was a professional photographer. Cameras and film were plentiful in my house. There was a studio with lights and backdrops in the dining room of our large Victorian house. The attic was turned into the darkroom. We had an amazing upbringing surrounded by creativity and the opportunity to explore photography. My first plundge into digital cameras was with the Olympus d500l, Then Nikon d50, and now I am lucky to have a d7000.
