Picked a camera in 1979 off to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale Fl. for training in the start of my photography, following my passion moved back to MI, connecting with the outdoors, became a member of N.A.N.P.A went to the yearly conventions as well as traveling for many of the subjects I have photographed over the years. A big birder a heart but once I step outside everything counts as there beauty in all of nature as I explore.
