In the beginning....

At some point I got really tired of traveling to spectacular places and not capturing what I was seeing or feeling.  I decided to take an online course about composition and the rest is history as they say.  I purchased by first DSLR - the Canon xSI and took it on a trip to Bhutan.  I got hooked to photography after that trip and I wanted to get better and better.  After a few more online courses I took my first workshop in Yosemite National Park.  I was nervous and still didn't really know what I was doing but I was getting out there and learning.  Several years later I'm addicted to landscape photography.  I take about 3 workshops a year and I do a lot of shooting in the mountains on my own.
