Describe your creative style in 3 words.

Inspired, imaginative, Visionary

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

We were in the smokies and I was shooting waterfalls. My camera popped off of my tripod and into the falls. I quickly got it back and put it in rice. I had to use my sister-in-law’s camera the rest of the time. Thank goodness she had an extra one. There were other times I struggled but watching a lot and reading a lot on KelbyOne, and other places, I have learned a lot and still am.

What sparked your love of photography?

I loved being out in nature and always wanted to put photos of my own on my walls.

What’s your favorite class on KelbyOne and why?

Well, I love a lot of classes on there but if I have to pick one it would be Dave Blacks Painting with Light: A Unique Approach.
