I first got interested in photography some years ago when a friend of mine got a 10 megapixel Olympus point and shoot. After playing with his camera and having way too much fun, I decided to get my own. I shot with the Olympus for several years but I found that I was limited in what I could do with a point and shoot, particularly with respect to low light photography and being able to make artistic choices about things like depth of field and bokeh.
After some time debating between Nikon and Canon, I purchased a Canon 5D Mark II and have been shooting full frame DSLR for several years. I have shot several gallery showings as well as a calendar for a popular lounge in Washington, DC.
I always have a list of equipment I'd like to buy, so if you're interested in hiring me to help subsidize my obsession feel free to shoot me an email!
A sample of my photography is available here under my portfolio page.
