I bet that if you asked 5 photographers how they became photographers you would get 5 different answers! Very few photographers that I know started out their professional life as a photographer! My story is much the same. I graduated with an Associates Degree from Allegany College of Maryland in Media Technology. I thought I would be a graphic designer or possibly work in television. One of my favorite classes was a television production class and one of my favorite projects was directing a news broadcast. Well here I am, many years later- a photographer!
The joy and satisfaction that I get from this profession is immense. I get to see families begin, and children grow, and seniors graduate, and couples celebrate 50th anniversaries! What a blessing to do this job!
My thanks to all of you that I have worked with, and to those I haven't worked with yet, I am looking forward to it!
