This page previously displayed a slideshow of some of my Flickr images. Those images are no longer public, so the slideshow has been removed. Perhaps it will be added again at some point.
There are two ways to see my non-public Flickr images: (1) join Flickr and I'll add you as a "friend" or "family" (whatever is appropriate), or (2) if you don't want to join Flickr, I can send you a "guest pass" which will give you viewing privileges.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY BIOGRAPHYLike most people, I had always owned a camera of some sort, but never considered myself to be a photographer. That began to change late in 2001, when I took a job at a small newspaper in Oklahoma. I was soon using the company's Sony Mavica digital cameras, which required floppy diskettes.
On March 30, 2002, I bought a Sony Cybershot DSC-P50 (2.1 megapixels). After two years, I upgraded to the Olympus C750UZ (4 megapixels) in May 2004. With nearly full manual controls, I began to take decidedly better photographs, and even won the Oklahoma Press Association's "Photo of the Month" award in July 2004.
Then, in August 2005, I took another leap forward, buying a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (8.2 megapixels). Soon to folllow were extra lenses and other accessories. In 2007, I added a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (10 megapixels).
Though I quit the newspaper in 2009, I still loved photography and kept up with it. In February 2012, I added the Canon EOS 60D to my stable, and passed the XTi on to a niece.
This page formerly listed my gear, but I now have a separate page for that: My Gear.
