Hello! Welcome! I took up residence in Vancouver, Washington 17 years ago. I was born in Longview, Washington, and raised in Portland, Oregon. My young adult years were spent traveling and living abroad from The Great Northwest. I enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer in this area, including the four seasons of weather we experience. My passion for photography began at the early age of ten with an instamatic camera. Over the course of the years I've had many different cameras. How technology has changed things in the world of photography over the past decade. There are many different types of photography that I enjoy, but by far I tend to enjoy landscape and long exposure photography the most. However, I don't count out doing an occasional light painting, or portrait work. The art of photography is and always will be an ongoing process for me. Thank you for stopping by, viewing the world through my eyes.
