J Laliberte, Virginia Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Native to New Hampshire, now residing in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley resting in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. My photography comes from a childhood hobby taking photographs in the White Mountains and followed me to the mountains of Bavaria and it's Castles as I served my country. As my life would move on to marriage and a child my hobby was put on hold as we were to become a family. In the late 1990's I would pick up my camera and continue my hobby with family trips to the beach and mountain hikes and of my son as he grew. My hobby began to expand into weddings, parties and portraits of family and friends. In 2003 my hobby changed directions into the fast sport of racing where it remains today. You can view my racing galleries at www.racer-tees.com. I still carry my camera on family vacations and an occasional ride into the mountains or a morning walk into the flowering fields behind our home. As to what the future holds in store for my camera as my life moves on, I guess we'll have to watch and see. One thing you can count on, I'll be sure to get some photos.
