Photography has been a long time passion of mine. It started when my dad gave me two old film cameras as a kid. Later I took courses in high school and college, and fully dove in well into the digital age. I'd been a hobbyist for a couple of years until some of my work was used in local and national publications (calendars, Cascadia Weekly, Vegetarian Times, album covers). When I realized that I might be able to make a living doing what I love, I jumped at the opportunity, and started offering my services to everyone I know!
