I’m a creative professional and photographer of many years. I remember my first big shoot for a college photography project, a collection of images celebrating the 200-year anniversary of Mercedes Benz, shot over 4 months with a Pentax SLR. I learned a lot during the Mercedes project about shooting outside, light, reflections, color, angles, and especially weather! I really loved spending time in the darkroom developing my film and experimenting with paper and light.

I went on to manage stock contracts and plan photography as part of my main career as a graphic designer. And I learned to style products and sets, working with human and animal models, and directing professional photographers.

Later, I got my first DSLR, set up a makeshift home studio, and integrated my own photography skills into my freelance business, shooting art, crystals, jewelry, lotions and vitamins, people, and events. I traveled and took the camera with me, finding fun in event photography and my real love of nature and wildlife scenes. I established Cape Ann Photographers Club in 2015, a Facebook and local group exclusively for area wildlife photographers, with over 1,000 members.
