My love of photography first began by watching my father who adored taking pictures and was fascinated by people of all kinds.

We even got to know Ansel Adams briefly as my parents knew him through his daughter they met by coincidence. Their first apartment belonged to a woman who was Ansel's daughter and had a famous print of his hanging in the apartment.

All of this prompted me to start a bit of my own exploring as a teenager.

I love seeing the world through a lens as much as ever, and am looking to really develop my skills now that I have a bit more time to "focus".
