Photography for me began more than 20 years ago as a mere hobby, coupled with a passion for animals and nature. Being an animal lover and horse owner, I began shooting photo images of horses, cats and dogs for other pet owners.

During my employment of 12 years within the Law Enforcement field, I also produced police related images for publication material such as newsletters, annual reports and brochures. In 1985 due too health reasons, it was necessary for me to resign from my position as a Police Aide/Crime Analyst with Henrico County Police Department. Unfortunately, my photography endeavors were also obstructed. In 1992, I resurrected my photography passion and focused on the pursuit of a career as a freelance photographer. My main focus has been placed on garden related, nature and animal images.
I am currently a new member photographer of ChromaZoneFLOWERS (www.chromazoneflowers.com) stock photo agency. I am also represented on P.S.I. Photosource International www.photosourcefolio.com/1276 & Art Wanted www.artwanted.com/art/PhotoDove
