I have always loved taking pictures and had considered for a time a career in photojournalism which led me to take several photography classes while in college. I ended up instead in the health care field. And much to my joy I found myself doing lots of photography, albeit it was not my main job description , but one could say I have been a simiprofessional since 1990. Next to photography my next favorite things to do are historical reenactments, rodeos, equine events and of course photographing them.
