I simply love photography, I enjoy the challenges each situation presents! 1st camera at the age of 6, Trusty Pentax K1000 kit at the age of 13. I remember my Grandpa looking through the K1000 kit telling me never to touch the screwdriver, that came with the cleaning kit! Started shooting weddings and working in a pro lab at 15. Eventually became a custom printer and saving all the pros hides in the darkroom! Now 24 years later, what would take sometimes hours to create in a darkroom now takes seconds or minutes on the computer. I do still have a complete color and B&W darkroom that I am NOT getting rid of. Its fun to see that image come up in the developer!
