I started rekindling my interest in photography in 2001. In the spring of 2003 I bought a new camera. I own a Canon Elan 7, Canon 100-400 IS L lens, 300mm macro lens, 28mm-135mm IS lens, 50mm lens, Kenko extention tubes, 2x teleconverter, Manfrotto tripod and head, and a few filters. In May 2005, came the purchase of my first Digital SLR camera, the Canon 20D, and a whole new world opened up for me to learn and be creative. I have since upgraded my camera again, and now carry 2 DSLR's with me.
I have taken a few courses here at Betterphoto.com, the first 2 being "Understanding Exposure" and "Art of Composition" with Bryan F. Peterson, along with courses with Tony Sweet, Jim Zuckerman, and others. I was voted top photographer in Bryan's "Art of Composition" class, along with Tony Sweets "Fine Art Flower Photography" and Jim Zuckerman's "Mastering Light" and "Wildlife Photography" courses, which I was very flattered and honored to receive.
I am constantly looking for "opportunities" no matter where I go now.
Since August of 2005, I was accepted into a stock agency and sell my work through them. I also photograph weddings and portraits professionally for the last 3 years and LOVE every minute of it!!
I welcome anyone's feedback on my photos. Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery :)
