I am a hobbyist photographer that enjoys the rewards of working with people or capturing a interesting image or scene - be it man-made or the art of Mother Earth. One of my reasons for joining Model Mayhem is to learn as much as I can by perusing others' works. I also am interested in getting to know the models, MAU's artists and other photographers in the Tampa Bay and Central Florida area. You can call me a 'weekend shooter' since I do have a day job (pays for the 'tools' made by Nikon, Buff, et al.), but I do live a block from the Gulf of Mexico on Pass A Grille Beach, so a great sunset photo shoot is available to me - pretty much every day!
