I like telling stories. Every face, every pose, every creature, every scene has a story to tell and my camera helps me listen.
When I was eight, my mother bought the family a 35mm camera. I read through the manual from front to back and lugged it and our massive bag of camera accessories everywhere. I tried out every technique the manual described and took hundreds and hundreds of photos... and by the time I got the pictures back from the photo lab, I'd completely forgotten what I was trying to accomplish. I gave up on photography for a while.
Years later, scuba diving and modern technology rekindled my passion for photographry. It showed me a new world and helped me rediscover an old one.
