I've been playing with cameras since I was in my teens, but did not become serious about the art until my late twenties. The purchase of my Nikon FM launched me in to a whole new world and a new appreciation for the art of photography. With the help of a wonderful mentor, my journey took new twists and turns as I tried various styles. Over the years this journey has included documentary, sports, events, architecture, portraiture and landscape photography. At this point in my life I tend to favor landscape and nature, with a preference for the abstract. I like looking at things a little differently.
