I grew up in the Upper Midwest which happens to be one of the most picturesque places on earth. I can't imagine living anywhere else.
My love for the camera and the outdoors blend well together. I love to spend hours on end walking and taking pictures during Spring, Summer and Fall. Once winter hits, and the weather gets less desirable (to say the least), I turn to my computer and create my digital artwork.
I love to share my images and ever-growing knowledge of photography with others, so I became a 4-H volunteer and I teach Elementary and High School students Basic Photography courses after school. Teaching these kids to see their worlds differently and to capture what they see has been so incredibly rewarding.
I hope to eventually turn my photography fetish into some extra retirement pocket change. I've got about 15 years worth of shutter clicking to make that happen!
