What would you call your style?

I really love nature photography and have been on a few Florida Birding Trail treks which have been really fun! I like shooting flowers, landscapes, and pretty much anything outdoors. I prefer warm-weather treks but have done several frigid-weather treks! I really prefer to be able to feel my hands when I'm shooting as my fingers work the camera controls better when they aren't frostbitten! The Missouri Botanical Garden is about my favorite place to image! Shaw Nature Preserve is high on my list too! I'm not good at people photography or low light situations, especially indoors, so those are areas I need help in. So, as far as style goods, I guess I'm still developing mine!

Is photography part of your profession?

Photography is a hobby for me right now, although I would like to learn more about how to market my photography so I can sell some of my work. (It would be nice to be able to justify my never-ending need for more equipment!)

Have you had any of your work published, exhibited?

I recently won 1st Place in the HerrinFesta Italiana Art Competition in Herrin, IL for an image taken at Horseshoe Lake titled Ice Dancer.

Will you be willing to assist in planning meetups

Once I am comfortable with the club and learn my way around the St. Louis area (I've only moved to the area recently), I might consider leading a meetup.


I'm what my other photo friends call "an advanced amateur" photographer! That means I kind of know what I'm doing and even if I don't, I look like I do! I love learning about photography but mostly I love the comradery between fellow photographers.
