I have enjoyed photography ever since my dad loaned me a camera and I took a black & white class in 10th grade. When I got to college I found the BEST job - someone paid me to go to and to take pictures of women's sports! When I went on vacation and traveled, I would then leave my camera at home. It was several years after graduating, and only doing a little bit of paid sports photography, before I began to really enjoy shooting on exciting travels. Now, my camera sits around waiting for travel to some great place. Fortunately, my son, Ryan, and wife, Sally, do provide great subjects for my camera locally.
