When I was in the Air Force in Alaska I would take myself on long back country hikes and come home with great stories and no proof; so I purchased a camera.
Fast forward eight years and I am a civilian living in Hawaii pressed by the technical barriers of my Canon G12.
I finally take the plunge and invest in a ‘real’ camera. Finally, I have the opportunity to capture light in the way I have been imagining it. Since November last year, I have found that the boundaries of what I considered plausible have become benchmarks in a developing portfolio I dare to call my career.
My goal is to become both a gallery artist and a commercial photographer like a combination of Peter Lik and Eric Alamas. I want to capture beauty, create beauty, and inspire beauty. I want to captivate, and engage; to learn, teach and learn from teaching. I think that these qualities are what professionals and leaders aspire to and develop for. I also think that these are the values I have towed with me since adopting the core values of the Air Force, specifically “Excellence In All We Do.” I deeply appreciate this opportunity to work hard on this dream and am grateful that you have spent a few moments to read about me.
