I received my first camera at age ten from my father, who had learned darkroom photography from a prominent photojournalist. That first starter camera sparked my interest in photography from that day forward. By the time I was in my twenties, I realized that photography would be a part of the rest of my life. I have lived in the Southwestern United States for over thirty years. My interests originally centered on the region's unique attributes, especially its vast landscapes. Then, in recent years, I have enjoyed narrowing my focus on birds, other wildlife and desert flora. My other interests are architecture, abstracts in architecture and abstracts in nature. Being outside with nature is the most rewarding part of expressing myself with photography because of the beauty and serenity. It evokes the creative spark that challenges me to portray what I see in the best possible light.
