A Lifetime of Taking Pictures

I love taking pictures. While it started when I was a child snapping a shot or two with my dad’s camera, my first “big” assign was taking pictures for my high school yearbook. Covering school events required learning how to plan for the unexpected and how to be in the right place to capture the story. Over the years I gravitate towards shooting mostly outdoor scenery with an affinity for national parks. This type of photography takes a different type of planning and sometimes a lot of luck – like when the bighorn sheep crosses the road. While most of my photography has continued to concentrate on the outdoors I have found times when I needed to dust off my skills from yearbook to cover the fleeting, unexpected story. Fortunately, today it does not require the skill to make sure the film is properly spooled in the camera!
