    I was on a mission trip to Haiti.

    Of course I was taking photos of everything but learned a very valuable lesson. I saw a woman sitting on the street washing clothes. I took a photo of her and she started crying. I am fluent in creole so I asked if everything was okay. She told me that she was fine just...

    I've been taking pictures ever

    since I can remember, whether it be pictures of my uncle on my Nintendo DS when I was 7 or selfies on my ipod when I was 10. Now I take family pictures for a bunch of people, having about three families per day. On Saturday, I had a cute family with seven kids. :)

    I have had a camera in my hand

    for as long as i can remember...well, back to the 1970's at least.. I'm always on the look out for something that will make a great image... Sometimes, the most ordinary object can be the focus of my shoot.... I then think of what's in the background....the foreground... Do I...

    Photography is my one true skill

    and passion. There are many things I am good at, but photography (or to be more specific, visualizing) is something I've always been 'inherently' good at. Put a camera in my hand, even a cell phone camera, and let me loose in the wilderness. I guarantee you I will come back with...

    Not professional- for me,

    it was just another way into art. Taking pictures of people are alright but love to photograph nature the most, for example, trees and landscapes or views at a beach or in the bush or something and it's always interesting taking pictures of animals. I write as well. I prefer to...

    I Am Obsessed With Eyes

    I am a photographer; I love to take pictures of just about anything that interests me, or that I think is truly beautiful. But my favorite thing to take pictures of without a doubt are eyes. I think that the eyes are the 'door into the soul', if you will. And if you don't believe...

    I am a new photographer.

    When I am photographing couples for a session, I sometimes have a hard time posing them.. Do you guys ever have a hard time? Do you ever look up poses during a session or is that unprofessional? Any tips would be awesome!

    Light. Chasing that elusive light.

    Every day a million different scenes are formed in the same spot as light bathes the ground from different aspects and intensities. Landscape photography is all about capturing that one in thousand chance of everything coming together at once. Chasing light I what I do for a...
