I am a Self-taught photographer from Austin, Texas who took a longtime hobby and recently made it into a career of a lifetime. I just dived into
the professional world of  photography after leaving my day job of 13 years in Feb 2006.
I discovered my love for photography while stationed in the U.S. Navy in
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. A friend and I purchased some cameras to have pictures to send home. The first snap of the shutter, the love of photography consumed me.
