I live in the small city of Hallowell, Maine, but grew up in Michigan and have also lived in Kazakhstan, Georgia (country of) and Armenia. My cameras have never been far from my reach and I'll do whatever I need to do to get the shot I want from climbing higher or lying on my stomach on the ground. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie and over the years I've progressed to my now very most favorite the Nikon D700. I studied photography at University as part of my BFA. I'll try to capture whatever it is that is where I am...sports, people on the street, landscapes, flowers...and now HDR is a new fascination with or without the use of a tripod.
