I have been taking photos since 1982. I have spent most of this time taking photos for the absolute joy of it. Recently I was asked to a calendar project and had a difficult time finding models. I like to work with amateur models because I do not do well with Divas. My goal is rather simple, I wish to show the world that beauty abounds in just about everything we see. It is the photographer or artists job to "see" the beauty in things, places, and expressions that they can then translate into a photograph worthy of being called Awesome.
