I've been interested in photography as a hobby for a long time. I got my first camera Christmas when I was 8. The bug didn't really hit me till I started taking pictures for the school in Senior High. I really got hooked then and I was frequently seen on lunch hours taking pictures of classmates, etc. I then proceeded to take art and photography courses while in high school. From there I went into college with the Media Resources program which also had photography for 3 terms. People ask me today why I don't do it professionally- I guess the easy answer is I decided to not take it that far. I enjoy it as a hobby and have always been a visual person. I don't know how many times when I wish I had a camera with me when I see a "shot" as I'm always looking. I may in the future take more courses to enhance my knowledge and skills in photo. I consider myself an advanced amateur as I have a lot to learn. I also used to work in a photolab, so I got to use some of my skills there.
