Amateur Photography School: My Story
Back in 2004, I was pursuing a Fine Arts degree in college.  I wasn't sure about what I wanted to do with my life, so when I was 21, being an artist didn't seem to be working out too well for me!  After graduation, my best friend suggested that I take some time off to figure out what it is that I want to do with my life. He then suggested that I might want to consider photography as a career.  I am pretty sure he was trying to get rid of me, but his words were kind of like a magical spell that totally changed my life.  I have been taking pictures ever since and I have never looked back!
