I am a city and landscape photographer based out of Tempe, Arizona. What hooked me was a trip to Hawaii in 2013. At the end of each night I uploaded photos I had taken that day and viewed them on an iPad. I can still remember how exciting it was to look through those photos each night. Not long after returning, I got my first dslr camera and the rest is history. Today, I have found that I am able to duplicate that exciting feeling at different moments throughout the process. Seeing one of my images go from the display of my camera, to my monitor, to a print, and finally into a frame is increasingly gratifying. There is something therapeutic about capturing an image and staying with it through the printing, matting, and framing process. Photography brings me great joy and I consider it to be a lifelong pursuit of mine.
