Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was about fifteen years old. I started out by using my Dads old Minolta 35mm SLR film camera and he taught me the basics of the camera such as shutter speed, aperture, and how to use an external flash. In high school I took a photography class and learned the techniques of developing film and making prints in the darkroom, then a few years later I took a correspondence course that taught me much more about developing an eye for composition (which I found out I already had for the most part). The years that followed consisted of taking photos now and then and eventually I was not shooting much at all. Then in November of 2005, I went out and purchased all new digital camera equipment which rekindled my interest in photography. Since then I take my camera everywhere I go and I now have my own business called Tich Photography. I have a home photo studio which I use for portraits and product photography, but what I love the most is capturing landscapes, skylines, and all the outdoors. To travel around, take in the sites, and record them for everyone to see is truly a good time.
