I have been a lover of the captured image since I was a kid. I took my first photo class, using film if you can remember what that was, in high school and I was hooked. I see photography as cinematic endeavor; each image tells a story, and everyone finds their own meaning. An artist I draw a great deal of inspiration from artists like Annie Leibowitz. She rides both ends of the creative spectrum, one end being grounded in reality, and the other, a fantasy world.
