Photography has been a part of my life since my dad bought me my first SLR when I graduated 8th grade - the Pentax LX. He knew I loved taking pictures before then, and I was both deeply excited and appreciative that he bought me a camera. I still own that camera today.
Fast forward to September 2011... I lost my job and was unemployed for about a year. I used this as an opportunity to get back into photography full-time. I had bought a Nikon D60 in 2008, and decided to upgrade to a D90. I've been taking classes at The Photo Classroom, and still do whenever I can.
I believe everything in life happens for a reason. One door closed on me, but this door opened up. I am truly happy that this opportunity presented itself. I love taking pictures of just about everything. To quote an article I read, "There are a lot of factors that go into taking a great picture. You need a good subject, background, lighting, equipment, and the right angle. Of course, probably the most important thing to have is a good eye for photography." I hope you like what I see from behind the lens.
