Many years ago, I picked up my first camera. It was the 1970’s and the camera was a “Mick-A-Matic” – in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head. From that moment, the idea of being able to capture a moment – not just a picture – has been my passion. It was in my blood. My grandfather was a photographer. Even today, some of his best family work hangs on the walls of my parents’ home. But he wasn’t just a “picture-taker”, he was also an artist. He developed his own images and did some amazing color work in the darkroom. Today, my brother has one of his original cameras – a Zeiss Ikon. A picture of that camera sits in my studio.
