I started taking snapshots when I was a kid, and got my first SLR camera about 1983. My pictures were terrible so I started taking classes at the local Jr. College, and eventually joined the Sierra Camera Club in Sacramento where we have competitions. Over time, my photography has improved. I wish I were more "creative" but my teachers have advised me to embrace my own style. I enjoy nature, architecture, peoples' portraits, action/sports, all sorts of photography. Still taking classes and still learning.
