I started in photography when I was in high school during the late 70's. I continued to take photography classes in the earlier part of my college career working with both 35 mm and large format cameras. Currently I am a marine biologist in San Diego and have recently rekindled my passion for photography while lightening my wallet, SUBSTANTIALLY! What can I say, I find solace from the everyday grind through my nature and wildlife photography and enjoy working in the "digital darkroom". At least my hands don't smell from all the chemicals but now I have to worry about ergonomics!!
