The term for what I specialize in is generally referred to as fine art nature photography. When I'm ask how I got started doing this, I can't pronounce momentous events, sudden inspirations or a mentor experience. I'm not even sure when it was that I first picked up a camera. For me, this experience has been more like a lifetime of learning with dedication and practice. Similar to the commitment required for becoming an accomplished musician, painter, sculpture or a professional in other chosen mediums.
