An artist streak runs in my family. My father painted and gave me an old Kodak camera when I was young. Painting frustrated me, as I was never able to put on canvas what was in my head. So I was always taking pictures. I loved animals from a very young age, having a “pet” squirrel that would follow me into the house, which would make my mother so mad. We weren’t allowed to have pets, so I made pets of any wild animal that trusted me. They were my subjects and for the most part, still are (like Masked Kitties).

When I lead workshops, I often find myself repeating the common saying, “Want to make more interesting photos, put yourself in front of more interesting things.” This is fair enough. As Ansel Adams memorably put it, “Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.”
