My interest in photography started as a child with an old Brownie camera and continued into my late 20's, then life and work got into the way. When digital came along I bought a 5mp point and shoot Kodak which I later upgraded to a Panasonic Lumix. The Panasonic, with its great Leica built lens, was fine for a few years and a few trips but then I changed to the Nikon D40X.. I thought that the "A" on the dial meant Auto, its a wonder that I managed to get good photos... boy was I stupid back then! The next upgrade was to the Nikon D300 which overwhelmed me with all of its features. So I enrolled in SAIT's Photography Courses and the more I learned... the more I became hooked on photography.
I've taken several workshops with fantastic photographers like Paul Burwell and Jack Lien. Now I plan my travels around either a photography workshop or a location that is filled to overflowing with great photo-ops! This year I traveled to Tanzania (a life changing trip), photographed the Palouse in springtime and drove to Kalispell for a wildlife photography workshop... I'm not sure whats next..
