I'm originally from Long Island, NY and now reside in Queensbury, NY, just south of the beautiful Adirondacks. I've been into photography ever since the 6th grade when I won an Ikon fun camera from a school fundraiser back in 1990. The camera still has film in it that was never developed. I used to use that camera all the time. Then in 2007 I upgraded to a Sony Cyber-Shoot 5.1 MP camera and used that often, especially once I began to get back into hiking the Adirondacks in NY. In 2014 I decided to finally take my passion for photography more seriously and purchased my first DSLR camera, the Canon 70D. While my photography improves all the time, I still consider myself and amateur photographer with the hopes one day to taken my photography to the next level.
