The Photography
I Love To Create

I am a second generation photographer that started taking pictures as a child with a cereal-box-prize 110 camera and have evolved into using a Canon EOS 7D DSLR. My passions include outdoor, night, and high dynamic range (HDR) photography, and I have interests in learning model and portrait photography. With my trusty cameras, I have taken pictures of everything you can imagine, including cows, aircraft, buildings, lightning, trains, people, and even a mystery figure in the waters of Deception Pass. While I don't have any formal photographic training, I consider myself to have an “eye” for anything that is visually captivating.
