I have loved photography since I was a teenager. There is something magical about the way a camera can capture a moment in time. I love photography for documenting events, making a statement, expressing emotions and creating art. I focused mainly on black and white photography until the advent of digital photography. It was hard for me to accept digital photography at first. I was reluctant to depart from my beloved film camera and I was sure I was the last hold out. I bought a second hand digital camera and printer from a friend just to try it out and I haven't taken any film photos since. I am so captivated by the idea that I can shoot 250 pictures, look at them and print my favorites all in the same day. It was through digital photography that I began experimenting with color. Lately I have been using the photos I take in the same way that an artist uses his pallet of paint. I am enjoying photoshop and the ability to manipulate images. I often use several images together to make a final print.

Although I was a portrait photographer for a number of years, lately I prefer to earn my living as a sign language interpreter, reserving photography for the pure joy of creative expression.
