- First of all, reading and asking other people questions is the way I learned so far... . . ..So to return the favor ANY questions are welcome. I think you never stop learning.
I'm a 29 yr old native born Southern Californian with a passion for Landscape photography. I've lived in Southern California my whole life(1978). Most of my family has moved away and still I stay. I guess I love it here! You can surf or snowboard all in the same day. As for photography I took a picture of Mono Lake w/ a kodak throw away camera and sold it w/out thinking much of it. A few years later I found and old 1970 Olympus OM2 35mm camera. After a couple of really bad rolls of film I finally got a shot that a lot of my friends wanted to take home with them. I figured out I had an eye for something. My father took the family to quite a few scenic places when we were kids and snowboarding later in life through all the mountain scenery must have sparked the interest in nature. Its been about 3 years since its been a serious hobby. I can definitately say I've enjoyed every minute of it. Even having to get towed out of the snow more than once, getting rained on miles from the car, breaking my own window to get my keys, and slipping in tide pools and breaking my equipment. Everyone has there bad moments but the good ones always out number the bad. With a good attitude you can make something out of nothing!
Some of my favorite places are Death Valley and Yosemite National Parks, the Big Sur Scenic Coastline, Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, and some of the unfamilar remote areas of California. I'm kind of Stuck in the Southwest Corner of the U.S. but don't seem to mind I wonder how many years it could take to photograph it and not get bored. I hope to travel outside of this little corner but I'm currently working two jobs so sometimes the most precious thing can be TIME. Thanks for visiting!!
Ok I just got a passport!!
