I am a photographer who looks outside of the frame for the shot. I see a photo op from all angles and demonstrate in some of my work. I am just looking for an opportunity to shoot. I was diagnosed with a blindness but through the world of photography, I see more than the beauty laid out before us. I am old enough to do as I please and young enough to do as I please. All I ask for is an opportunity to shoot, create, move and explore.
