Growing up, our family spent a lot of time together outside, with one of my favorite memories being making maple syrup with my dad. One Saturday morning we headed into the woods to start the fire for boiling the maple sap, and there was a fresh snow fall glistening on the bare branches above me. I said, "I wish I had a camera." And my dad told me to take a picture with my mind. I did.
I've always been a rather quiet person, and for me, photography is my outlet. It allows me to show people how I am feeling, my creative side and most importantly, the beauty of God's creations all around us.
During my junior year of college I bought my first DSLR — a Nikon D100 — which I still use today. I didn't know much about using a DSLR, but I was determined to learn. I joined the UW Oshkosh Photography Club, shadowed a photographer and started practicing, practicing, practicing.I learn something new each day and continue to learn, and I never want to stop learning.
