photography

IMG_7206a
I’ve always been the one behind the camera, the one snapping photos of small hands filled with treasures and eyelashes glittering in sunlight. After a class in high school, where I spent most of my time in the dimly lit darkroom, I fell in love with light and aperature. It was apparent that I was more comfortable with a camera in hand than the one the lens was pointed at, the one developing pictures rather than waiting on someone else to develop them.

After purchasing my first DSLR in 2005, I started posting pictures on flickr and gained both inspiration and confidence. I had become paralyzed less than 2 years before, so I had to learn to hold and manage a camera all over again. And all at my new height, in my wheelchair.  I first just enjoyed photography as a hobby, though I am now putting the time in to turn this passion into a business. It’s exciting when you love, genuinely and purely, what you do. I haven’t quit my day job (yet), but it’s a goal.

    I can see the love in your photographs. Each capture is a tiny glimpse of a time and place, frozen forever to treasure & share. – Bob
