I am a 39 year old mom from freezing cold Michigan. I started taking pictures about 10 years ago with an old manual Vivitar I bought at a garage sale. I discovered I had the "eye" for good photos, and...found that photography is very theraputic. Whenever im down, I go on a road trip, and take pictures. By time I am done, I feel MUCH better, lol.
I am now on the threshold of actually making money off of my "therapy". I have sold a couple of my artistic prints, and have my first senior portrait client next week. I am excited.
This looks like a great group...and I am still considering myself an amateur at this, so I am hoping to learn here as well as share with others who have this same passion.
