Photography first interested me when I received the gift of a small "point and shoot" camera that started a love affair with photography which continues to this day.


 
For me the challenge of photography to be one of reducing an image to its essentials, where a painter starts with a blank canvas and adds to it to get the final image, a photographer starts with an image and frames and crops till he/she gets to the image that they seek. The challenge I enjoy most is to reduce the beauty,history and atmosphere of a place down to a single frame.
