Life started in the Montana Rocky Mtns, then the Colorado Rockies, mix Florida, VA Beach, Dallas, Houston & now Abilene, TX.... that's my past as far as where I have lived. I have enjoyed sports my whole life. I was very fortunate to go to a school that had ski lessons, which was awesome. I basically, just consumed all my time playing sports. It evolved into various different types of sports as my interests changed & my social life changed. Mind you, this is all back when video camera owners were scarce & a good photographer? Um, I didn't know any. I actually video taped a couple of my friends snowboarding in Breckenridge, CO with my Hi8 Sony camcorder & all it did was frustrate me. I could video tape, so much better than my friends, lol. I would ride along next to them & following them, I was good. I did that when I dislocated my elbow & couldn't ride the way I wanted to anymore. I have one day of recordings in my possession & it was terribly recorded & it was icey as hell that day on the mountain.... so, whatever. The one good picture that I had, was in Vail snowboard park, when it was the premier park in the country (1998). My friends & I submitted the photos for our HS yearbook, they "couldn't" use them because they didn't believe it was us. The photo was never returned to me.... It was a beautiful picture, too (for a disposable camera).
My photography career started, I guess, when I was a motorcycle mechanic (Japanese) in DFW, TX. I took some photos of bikes I worked on & some of the nice bikes that came through. I really do love motorcycling, I just was very dangerous when I rode them. I took pictures when visiting Lisbon, Portugal when my wife received "President's Club" with her then employer, Essilor of America. That was with a small Nikon Coolpix, point & shoot. I took that same camera to Cozumel, Punta Mita & Cabo San Lucas. It turned out some really great pictures! Some of my favorites, still. I had kids & it just got more & more exciting for me. I started to mess with Adobe Photoshop programs & I am fully addicted now.
A while back, I picked up an online mentor, Spyros Heniadis, through YouTube & he taught me just about everything I know. Nowadays, Glenn Johnson, an extremely talented, high end architectural photographer, who has been taking photos since the Inquisition, gives me a lot of support in many ways. I get to pick his brain & he has given me some amazing equipment! Yes, given. So, thanks Glenn. I will have a link hopefully to his website, it is as good as it gets folks.
