Photography August 19, 2014
August is winding down, but it’s still Photography Month here on the ADC blog. We are featuring a different photographer every day of the month. Some are seasoned professionals, some are young up and comers, and some are just amateur shutterbugs taking snapshots on the side. One thing they have in common: they are all ADC Members, part of our globe-spanning creative community. We hope that you enjoy their work as much as they love creating it!

How old were you when you took an interest in photography, and when did it become more than an interest?
I’d say that I started getting into photography at age 12. It became bigger for me in college, when I snuck onto the Syracuse basketball court and began photographing the games. AP and UPI photographers kindly educated me on the nuances of sports photography prior to digital and auto-focus cameras. You had to know how to focus, expose, and track the action.
What do you love most about photography as an artform?
It’s the chance to tell a story in one image.
What is your favorite thing to shoot?
I love to shoot people doing something they love and experiencing life. It’s an honest window into another person’s life. The experience captivates me and I learn something about another human being. It’s a very vulnerable place to see.
