I take Sr’s., portrait, events, weddings, and more on the weekend and have been to many photography training classes by many associations near me. In the last 3 years, I have been shooting more and people. For the past two years, I’ve been being trained by Marie DuPrie at her studio. When shooting professionally, I go by the business name DigiSharp Photography – I also take many pictures for the local newspaper “Tri-County Times”.
