I received my first camera at 2, it was a disposable. I set up Easter basket still lives. At 5 I was laying on the ground looking up at sculptures shooting abstract images.
I grew up on the waterfront making bon fires, singing in choir, swimming in the puget sound, boating, fixing old cars, photography always my form of documentation. Slated to graduate high school, a junior at 16, I returned for fear of my young age in college. The only courses left were Yearbook and Photography. Book design and photography just clicked.
