Way back in high school we were fortunate enough to have a photography elective and a darkroom. This was my start. I still have the Minolta X-570 that my parents graciously purchased for me. Back then I was taking lots of shots of my friends skateboarding and snowboarding. After high school, I left my film camera and went digital with a point and shoot. These were my snapshot years. It wasn't until later in life that the photography bug came back to bite me and I picked up a starter DSLR to document my hikes and travels. After a few years of shooting with it, I decided upgrade to a full frame camera. A pretty good decision, I must say! Today, I find myself shooting just about anything that moves me.
