What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm always reading. I search things everyday to try and learn more and improve wherever I can with my photography. There's always something I didn't know (of course) and I love trying new techniques and adding new ways of doing things to my list. I'm hoping that all the work I do trying to learn will add to making me a better photographer.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've loved photography since I can remember. I've always had a camera with me, whether it was a disposable, a cheap point and shoot, or now my Canon DSLR.
I always try to find things to practice on. I've done nature shots, I take tons of pictures of my 2 girls, and family is always asking me to bring my camera to take pictures or asking me for prints of ones I've taken. I feel like photography is my "niche" and it's my dream to have it be my source of income someday.
