At the age of 14, I had a photography class in high school, and needed help figuring out all there was to photography. My grandfather had a great deal of experience in photography and chemistry, as well as many unique photographic acquaintances with renowned photographers.
With a camera on loan from my high school, a full dark room setup in my grandfather's basement, my desire to learn and his willingness to teach, I have been continuously pursuing this passion of mine. Photography has been a vehicle that formed a bond with my grandfather and I, which most likely would not have happened. I cherish the time we had together and will continue to do my best to apply all that he has taught me about photography and life.
