How did you get started in this business?

I was a high school English teacher with the responsibility for the school yearbook.  I took photography and journalism courses in the summer break.  After teaching photography to the students taking yearbook classes, I was asked to photograph families, weddings, children and high school seniors.  I took photography classes through professional organizations and eventually taught other professional photographers at conventions in surrounding states.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with all ages of people and types of photography over the years.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Because I have been photographing professionally for so many years, my favorite experience is photographing for another generation where I have taken the senior pictures of the parents of current high school seniors.
