This is always the hardest part - telling people about yourself.
I started my lifelong love affair with photography when I was in the 6th grade - when I taught myself how to develop Black & White film. That's a foreign concept to most of you now - but it was that which built upon the solid basis of photography that I have today. Learning studio lighting, posing and working with clients is where I started after graduating high school.
Fast forward to the age of digital imaging. Photoshop and image manipulation are what I love. It can be as subtle as adding makeup to my image shown - I'm a very casual person, if you hadn't gathered that already. To a full on composite image creating what didn't exist in real life.
