I was a United States Marine in the early 1990's and my oldest daughter was born on Camp Pendleton, Ca. The day she was born I bought a my first SLR camera and vowed to capture her beginnings to share with family back home in Michigan. What I found out is that that my love of art, design, and the technical aspects of photography fulfilled something in me that was missing. The challenge of mixing composition and style into images to create art was a life altering endeavor. It simply made me happy to capture a moment in time for myself and others. After the Marines I choose to provide for my family with an apprenticeship in Tool and Die as a Mold Maker and as satisfying as that was I worked at the craft of Photography to fill the artistic void that my day job lacked. Over the years my passion turned into my career and I was able to open my studio and pursue my love or Photography as a full time career. Since then the PPA and my Local PPWM group has aloud me to grow as a photographer and meet fellow professionals. These groups helped me break down walls in the business of photography and succeed. I cannot think of a better job on the planet than being a Photographer.
