While studying for my Masters in Physics, my interest was piqued in photography because I need to learn about optics and utilize camera sensors for conducting tests. As a result of this, I started taking photographs, so it was somewhat serendipitous that a couple years later I met an art student who was studying photography. I asked her to critique my work and go on photo shoots with me. My knowledge of light and being trained as a physicist along with her knowledge of composition and subject matter helped me to start visualizing the world as an artist. My passion was born and I felt a connection to my ancestor, Great Great Uncle J T Winburn, a well-known photographer in the early 1900’s. 250,000 photos later I still feel the same passion about photography and enjoy experiencing the world through my lens!
