Describe your creative style in 3 words

Peaceful, strong, modern

Tell us about a time you struggled or failed with your photography, and how you overcame it?

I was always perturbed because my images weren’t as tack sharp as the ones I see in KelbyOne classes.  So I purchased a Canon R5.  Problem solved!

What sparked your love of photography?

My Dad was into photography as a hobby in the late 60’s/early ’70s when I was a teenager.  We had a darkroom in the attic and he taught me to develop my own film and print my own images.  I was the photographer of our high school yearbook.  After taking a break to get my engineering career and family going, I eagerly jumped back into photography as a hobby about 15 years ago.  

What’s your favorite class on KelbyOne and why?

They are all fabulous with such an impressive line up of instructors, so impossible to narrow it down.  Pretty much any class Scott has done is my favorite.  I see his teaching somewhere in every one of my photos.
