- How would you describe your photographic style?
I really don’t have a style per say, I enjoy spending time with Nature and my camera. I like to be creative with nature.
- Which photographer is your biggest inspiration?
I don’t have a specific photograher. I do get a lot of inspiration from fellow club members as well as from members from my other photography group.
- How long have you been interested in photography?
I have always enjoyed photography, especially when I had children. I have tons of photos of my kids growing up, but they are just pictures. I really started getting more into photography about 8 years ago. I still have a long way to go and lots to learn.
- What was your first camera?
My first camera was a film Instamatic, when it broke I didn’t have one for years. When I met my husband he had a Canon film 35mm, which I took over. I then got a Canon Power-shot which was pretty good. But as I grew I knew I wanted more so I purchased a Canon T2i and grew to a Canon 70d. Still waiting for my dream camera, but all in time.
- What is your dream photo trip?
My dream trip would definitely be to Alaska or Iceland.
