In the early 1980's, I purchased my first good camera and have been an avid photographer ever since. My interests cover a wide range including landscape, travel, wildlife and surfing photography. I am always searching for the next image. The joy of photography for me is this search and the discovery of an image and then, of course, capturing it in a pleasing way. While on this constant quest for the next image, sometimes I learn to see things in a different way. This is also part of the joy of photography.
