Northeast Ohio Based Photographer
My journey with photography began before the age of digital. I worked at a One Hour Photo/Camera Counter during my college days and that is where I fell in love with cameras themselves. The more I worked with them, learning and creating images through the eye of a camera, the more I knew I wanted that to be a part of my future…and so I switched my major. Studying Journalism/Photo Journalism I took my first college photography class where I was introduced to the full creative process. And so was born my first great love in photography…35mm black and white. I was fortunate enough to have a dark room set-up in my parent’s basement. There I would spend many midnight hours after the school and workday was behind me. My dark room quickly became a place where I felt I could be completely me, to express myself and to create.
I have to admit that I moved into the world of digital photography with much reluctance. How could it possibly be a match to my 35mm and dark room? Yet here I am and LOVING IT!!!
The beauty of photography is not simply in its artistic expression... It is the forever that it captures...Memories to relive...Future stories to be passed on...
