I have had a passion for photography since I was a small child with my parent's 35mm consumer camera. When I was a teenager, I had the rare opportunity to become an apprentice of one of the Upstate's premier photographers. He taught me the difference between a snapshot and a work of art. Though I have acquired a lot of sophisticated gear since then, I haven't forgotten what I learned as a kid with that 35mm camera.
