I come from a generation of photographers. My father was a professional back in the 60\\\\\\\'s and 70\\\\\\\'s with a studio. I remember going on wedding shoots with him as well as seeing his portfolio. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond anyone\\\\\\\'s control, 99% of his work was destroyed.
But I learned from him starting at the age of 9. Starting on completely manual Pentax style
bodies with cheap lenses slowly graduating to better and better equipment. With my father\\\\\\\'s passing last year I inherited camera equipment I hadn\\\\\\\'t seen in over 30 years including a Mamiya C3 TLR and a Monorail. Both in near mint condition. I\\\\\\\'ve rediscovered medium format shooting since.
But my main focus for the past few years has been underwater photography. Using a Canon Rebel xTi and ikelite housings I\\\\\\\'ve shot around the world and have been published in magazines out of London such as Underwater Photography as well as placing in the top 4 of a few international underwater themed contests.
I walk, drive, ride around the city looking at everything as a possible shot.
I recently shot my first wedding and will be teaming up with another young fantastic photographer and an amazing videographer to enter this amazing venue.
