I have always had a camera. I started with a simple point and shoot camera. That simple camera allowed me to concentrate more on the composition of the image rather than how to capture the image. It wasn't until I received a professional digital camera for Christmas one year, that I took control of my pictures. Years of just taking pictures turned into taking photos. Every day I learn new things, technique, and equipment. Coming from a film world into digital wasn't hard, it was exciting. I love to travel, which I don't seem to do as much as I'd like, but when I do I have a camera with me. Film or Digital - Its in the bag. I run one of the largest photo groups in Dallas. Dallas Photography Group part of MeetUP.com This has placed me along side of some of the most talented and amazing people I have known, which has turned out to be the best learning experience of my life. In an attempt to keep the photography outings fresh and adventurous has lead me into some amazing places and experience some things I would never have had on my own. I'm always looking for the next great photo op, so if you have one - Send It My Way !
