How would you describe your interest in photography? Or, are you involved with photography in some other form?

I received my first SLR, a Minolta X700, when I was 13 and been in love with photography ever since. Being able to capture an image that communicates the beauty and emotion of a scene laid out before you is almost magical. I also enjoy the post-production just as much as the initial capture. Watching an image truly come to life is a great experience.

What type of photography do you enjoy the most?

Seascapes are by far my passion but I also enjoy regular landscapes, night skies, portraits, and models on occasion. Though Charlottesville is not necessarily a mecca for it, surfing images are some of my favorite to create. The combination of an ocean, movement, timing, and a human element is best of all worlds.

Do you use a DSLR , a film, point-and-shoot camera or a combination?

I use Nikon D800 and D300S. I'm looking to get a couple of Go-Pros for the kayak and use my iPhone if nothing else is on hand at the time.

What would you like to get out of our organization?

I'm still fairly new to Charlottesville (2-years) but haven't really had a chance to meet others nearby who enjoy photography. I was very in the Hamptons Picture This photography group before leaving VA Beach and still maintain contact with several of the members from there. Making new friends that share a similar interest nearby will be great.

A lot of work goes into planning these events. Can we depend on you to show up to an event if you RSVP?

Yes, I've led both workshops and trip events in the past and know the amount of planning and effort that goes into them. If I RSVP, I will attend.
