About the Book
My brother gave me my first camera when I was nine or ten years of age, he bought it in Europe. I don’t remember much about the camera itself, it was the pictures I couldn’t get enough of—and that still holds true. My life is all about photography. In the beginning it was Black and White film, I loved being in the darkroom nothing could compare to it and even though I swore I’d never go digital, I rarely shoot film anymore. Eventually I got serious about photography and submitted a portfolio to the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM, they offered me a scholarship and I accepted. The college hired me as their photographer and I covered all college and museum events. Then Disney Summer Films workshop began at the college, and I started working behind the scenes on movie sets making still and moving images. This took me to a whole new level of photography. I say photography is my life because I can’t imagine doing anything else.
