How long have you been interested in photography?

Never knew how to do anything except point and shoot camera on auto until 2-3 years ago when I began taking photography classes at WCC for fun. Have now taken several classes and attended a few workshops.

What kind of camera do you use? (DSLR, point-and-shoot, make, etc...)

Canon 60D. I generally use an[masked] lens, but I also recently acquired an 85mm and a[masked] sigma lens.

How do you want to grow as a photographer this year?

There is so much to learn about photography. My goal is to remember what I have already learned and apply it as I continue practicing my skills. I also want to try photographing new subjects that I typically don't photograph.

If you could pick one spot in the state of Michigan to spend a few days making photographs, where would that be?

I love traverse city and the sleeping bear dunes area, so probably somewhere near there in the fall.

Do you enjoy hiking, kayaking and camping?

Yes, although I prefer cabins to tents as I get older :). I have done a fair amount of hiking on different adventures (Alaska glacier, Zion, Red Rock Canyon, etc.). We own kayaks both here in Michigan and at our home in the Florida Keys.


Hi, My name is Janet Lawton. I've lived in Ann Arbor for 14 years after living on the west side of the state (Rockford and Fremont). I'm a stay-at-home mom who was a CPA in my former life and am nearing the empty nest stage of my life.
