I am a L8Bloomer. I always have been. I got a job late, I got a car late, I graduated from college late, I blossomed as a teacher late. You name it, I probably did it later than most. Thankfully, you don't have to complete things on a schedule dictated by others. It is never too late to discover your passion. That is what happened to me, and, surprisingly, it took a pandemic for me to really get the ball rolling.
The thing about usually being late is that I also tend to learn things very deeply. Early on, others were usually learning what ever it was that needed to be learned faster than I was. But, at some point, many people stop learning and figure they have enough to get by. That has never been true for me. If I am learning something, I am always, always, always learning deeper and learning more. That is what happened during COVID-19, I started learning a trade that has fascinated me for years as deeply as I could muster - the art of photography.
In the Internet age, there is so much to learn from others online. Have a question, find a Youtube video with information. Have a problem? Hop on a Facebook photography group and ask someone who knows better - and there is almost ALWAYS someone who knows better.
My photographic art is a culmination of harnessing my creative side and finding out what grabs my viewer's eye. It is about getting out to where the best pictures can be made. It is realizing that I live in an area of the world (Arizona) by which many people across the globe are fascinated. Lucky me. Welcome to my world. Drop me a line if you have any questions. Oh, I am a teacher at heart - if you want to delve into my mind and know what I know, let's plan an outing. I look forward to meeting you!
My art photography business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization. This means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.
The Arizona desert inspires me. People who live in it sometimes don't behold the beauty around them. Fewer still actually get out to enjoy the natural beauty that is sometimes no more than a 15 minute drive away.
I use a combination of choosing the best and most photogenic locations in the desert (and occasionally the mountains which are less than an hour and a half away), the right time of day, with creative post-production (I call it "playing around" with images after downloading them from my camera) to create a style that is uniquely mine.
My career highlights have yet to be accomplished! However, I was honored to have one of my favorite photos displayed in an art gallery in Johanesburg, South Africa after an online photography contest.
