I have been taking photos for a long time. I entered my first photography contest when I was in middle school. I used my dad's 110 camera to take a photo of a calf with mom in the background. I took second place in that contest and had to live down the fact that I was the only one entered in the category.
I moved to California and took photography up in earnest. I have been shooting people, places, and things for more than 15 years. The concerts and events started a couple years ago. I shoot for myself, bands, venues, and promoters.
I love any opportunity to go out and shoot photos. Whether it is a concert, a road trip to somewhere fun, or stock photos, I am happiest with a camera in my hand.
