“Photography is something that I’ve always enjoyed—figuring out how to look at things from the right angle. In fact, a number of the photos on the wall here are mine.

My father was a high school teacher and one of the things he was doing at the time was the yearbook class. During the summer he had one of the SLR cameras from that and he brought it home and I used it on a family vacation, I guess in 1975. I was taking all these pictures and learning how to use it. The next year or the year after that he got me my first real camera. Since my early teens I’ve been doing that and I never really stopped. Other things have come and gone but photography’s been the one constant.”
