Artist Statement My father was an amateur photographer with his own darkroom, so I was surrounded by photography from a very early age. The first camera I can remember using was one that took Kodak Disc film, when I was about nine years old. By the time I was twelve I had a 35mm point-and-shoot camera, and I got my first SLR - a Pentax p30t - at the age of 15.



In high school I took a photography class and eventually became the school's yearbook photographer. I also entered several photography contests and placed a few times, including in the publication "Best of Photography Annual 1997" by Photographer's Forum. I wanted to become a photojournalist so I enrolled in the photography programme at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. Unfortunately, I was not in a position to be able to support myself financially on that degree programme so I ended up transferring to something with a stronger job market and putting photography on the back burner for a while.



I've never given up on this craft, though, and though the years I have continued to shoot photos wherever I went. I have many slides and negatives that still need to go through the scanner. In 2003 I finally went digital, albeit with a compact Pentax S4. In 2006 I bought my first digital SLR-type camera - a Konica Minolta Dimage A2 - and at the end of 2008 I got my first full interchangeable DSLR, an Olympus e-520. With this new camera I am looking forward to achieving even larger prints to offer through this website. I will also finally be able to experiment properly with star trails - I haven't done one since 1996!
