My passion for photography began as a child — even telling my parents what pictures they should take! Photography is a “time machine” which transports us back to different eras and places worldwide. It stops time and captures life in each century in a timeless fashion. From the beauty of the human face and body to the rugged terrain, vast oceanscapes, breathtaking sunsets, amazing wildlife, and fascinating cultures, photography captures it all.
