I’m just getting started in my photography, learning by example and reading/studying, trial and error.

I’ve always been interested in photography. I currently use a Nikon D5200 and two lenses - a 50mm and an 24-85mm. I bought the 5200 because I wasn’t sure if this would be a lasting passion… needless to say I’m ready to upgrade!

I like black and white images more than color. I think they’re more intimate and portray a better story. I’d love to start doing portraits eventually. Right now my style is predominantly nature, architecture, and urban exploration.
