I have been a Photo hobbyist for over 30 years. I have studied, been guided, and feel that I have an eye for capturing the beauty of life as it is meant to be imagined as well as seen. My interests are in world travel, real life, the ocean, the desert, and architecture, especially mid-century and modern design. My love of capturing people, however, was ignited during a photo shoot in Dominica, with its majestic rain forests. A little boy jolted me out of my joy when he ran up to me and said, "Why are you taking pictures of the stupid mountains, take a picture of ME!" So I did, and have since realized the wonders of photographing people.
