It all began when I received a hand-me-down camera. I started taking photos with it and have been hooked ever since. I've lived in the Sandpoint area for over 11 years, and the majestic surroundings continue to be an inspiration for my photos. While landscape photography is one of my passions, I also enjoy capturing the love and joy of people. I have recently expanded my portfolio to include family, professional and wedding sessions. The most exciting aspect of photography is that there is always something new to learn, whether it's another lens to figure out or a flash to master. This keeps both me and my bank account busy. Photography has become more than just a hobby to me -- it's a creative outlet.
