Photography has always been part of my life. I remember, as a child in England, trying to take photos of television shows, like "Top of the Pops." Apparently I had a need to preserve everything, even the Bay City Rollers. Yes, that dates me.

I moved on to family vacation shots and, to the annoyance of some, trying to photograph people when they weren't looking. I didn't realize then, at the age of 10 or 12, that I was simply exploring the many wonderful facets of the craft (snapshots, photojournalism, portraits, etc.)

Many peel and stick photo albums later, I moved beyond point and shoot and purchased my first Canon SLR. It was 2003 and I could have gone directly to digital, but I didn't. The combination of a pleasant, peaceful darkroom, my Canon Rebel with a single kit lens and a hot light with a black backdrop kept me busy for quite a while.

Fast forward to now. Many hours, many frames and more $$ spent on equipment than I dare imagine, I am completely digital and my darkroom is a deserted friend. For the last four years, I have photographed, friends and family, sunsets and skunks (that would be a fundraiser for Paws) and ventured into weddings and events.

I am currently working on personal projects and accepting client work (including freelance retouching) on a job-by-job basis.
