By no means am I a professional. Photography has merely been a passion I've been able to share and enjoy. I will forever be a student of the work of others; all of whom are likely far more accomplished than I.
I have risked my camera meeting asphalt at 70mph and a dog partially consuming my lens. I have leaped from rock to rock up a river to find the right frame. Nothing is out of reach for the imagination. Planned or spontaneous, the image that makes you feel is always worth taking risks to retrieve.
