I've been involved with art as long as I can remember, but I've only recently entered into photography. I only have basic equiptment, but I find this keeps my focus on my subject matter and encourages me to put my artistic abilites ahead of any technological aids. I shoot mainly in my local area, and I develope both the negatives and prints on my own.
