Had a camera for a Christmas just about every year since I was 3 years old (anyone remember rotating flash cubes??). Got back into Photography during high school, and got really serious about it 4 years ago. I enjoy all aspects of photography from landscapes, to photojournalism, to fashion/glamour. Dont wanna sell sex on my images, but I dont mind them being sexy.
I envy the skill of the early photographers, who didn't rely on Photoshop (even the early Playboy stuff...its not about the nudes.... ) and what they were able to capture in PURE CAMERA. No image editing software, no touch up (Except for the old school developing tricks with enalrgers, filters, etc....). Just raw talent. I hope to one day reach that level of awareness in my photography, along with my grasp of photo-editing software to take imagery to the levels photographers are capable of attaining today. I am amazed of the things can be done with the cohesion of photography and our current technology.
I am 1/3 of a great team of photogs (+ John and Jeff mentioned below) that turned a hobby into a paying gig while having fun doing it. Just check out the website... Commercial/Ad/Weddings all under the belt

Robert Cappa (1913-1954) - War photographer. Stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day with his camera. His works captured the War era with emotion. Reminds me "What are you willing to do, to get your shot??" Look up his work.
