I am an avid photographer. I have always loved photography but now that I have a digital SLR, I'm really expanding my horizons. I have also entered several contests and won various awards. The Welder which is included as part of this group, won "Best in Show" in a recent local competition. I have worked as a staff photographer for our local paper on occasion shooting some sporting events. I am a member of 2 local photography clubs and find that to be invaluable in continuous improvement of skills.
