My first camera was a point-and-shoot nicknamed "The Pink Bouncer" because I dropped it so many times, no one could believe it still worked. I mostly took pictures of my dog.
In high school, I started my formal photography training in an elective class squeezed between history and theatre. I used my father's ancient single lens reflex, and developed black and white photos under a red light, bathing them in sulfurous-smelling baths.
Fast forward to today, and I still love to learn and take classes. My equipment is all heavily insured. And I've developed an unique aesthetic and approach to photography, capturing authentic emotion, dramatic light, and clean, vibrant colors. Vintage elegance, with a rock and roll edge.
I now live with my family in sunny Yuma and work all over Arizona and the desert southwest.
