It started with a girl but doesn’t it always? I moved to Alabama after serving in the military and fell in love. We were together for four years until we reached a fork on the road. I spent weeks brooding in a half empty apartment. I needed something, anything to occupy my mind. I discovered Flickr and closely followed the lives of several conceptual photographers. A few months later I had saved up enough money to buy my very own camera. It was like falling in love all over again.
I enjoy the outdoors: exploring, hiking and camping. I’m thankful to be living in Huntsville for its caves, rivers and waterfalls. In all honesty, I don’t know if I truly enjoy these things for what they are or if I enjoy them for my photography’s sake. Alternatively, I’m much of a recluse. I spend most of my nights alone reading, writing, or watching movies and drinking wine.
