How did you get started with photography

I was on my honeymoon and I remember taking some photos of dilapidated boats against the sunset. I forgot about the images until I came home. My wife had the film roles developed and commented on how good the images looked. 2 years later I enrolled in a professional program for "fun", and since then I have won exhibit contests, been published and been paid for my work.

What do you love about your job?

There are two things I love about my work. First, I get paid for capturing beauty in the ordinary. And second, my work has been seen by thousands of people.

What are some of your favorite places in Washington to take photographs?

I love photographing at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna. The place is full of beautiful backdrops. I also like photographing against rustic backgrounds like old farms or industrial buildings. The contrast makes the subjects pop.
