In 1974 at 19 years old I was handed my first camera. I absolutely fell in love with Photography! I was self taught until 1978 when I entered The Art Institute of Atlanta, graduated in 1980. I ran a small studio in Marietta, GA for a while but finally gave it up. Marriage and kids got in the way for a while. Picked up my first digital camera in 2006 and have never stopped. I have been documenting the oyster and fishing culture of Apalachicola Bay since 2010.
