I can trace my desire to capture moments on camera back to when I was a child playing with my Matchbox cars. I’d line them up and do photoshoots with them and I still have those first photos I took and I cherish them. I think the real significance of photography came when I saw my first dolphin at Sea World. As a kid growing up in New Mexico I had a fascination with sea creatures, especially dolphins. Snapping that photo of the first dolphin I’d ever seen in person and being able to come home print it out and frame it and have it on my wall as a reminder of that experience made the camera a very special tool for me early on.
