Mike Perry, Folsom, CA Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I'm currently a 22 yr old college student going to California State University Sacramento majoring in Geography with a certificate in Web Design and Metropolitan Planning. I was born in Roseville, CA and I am currently living in Folsom as I have for most of my life. As a kid i liked to draw pictures of bridges and cities, play SimCity, and draw the US freehand in 5 minutes, so naturally I'm in geography and taking pictures for a living.
I enjoy weekend trips to the Bay Area, Tahoe, and state parks to take pictures. I have only been an avid photography for a few years now, working my way up from cheapy cameras to my Nikon D40 currently. For the most part, my photographic passion is in landscapes and cityscapes.
I enjoy hiking and hope to summit the state's highest peaks. Besides photography and traveling, I really enjoy listening to music and talking with friends. I like computers; I practically live on Facebook, iTunes, Amazon.com and Google Earth. I have a passion for weather and climatology and I enjoy video games, economics and stocks as well.
