Being raised in the country, I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors and seeing God’s beauty all around. I’ve been taking pictures for many years, but always with cheap cameras, the first of which was a Kodak Disc camera. A few years ago, my son asked for a DSLR for Christmas, and when I saw what it could do, I eventually bought myself one. I started taking a more serious interest in photography after that and now I take pictures everywhere I go and every chance I get. Photography is still just a hobby since work takes up a lot of my time, but I’m always learning and continuously trying to improve.
