I became serious about photography in 2001 after the passing of my mother, Linda Jean Turney. It began as a way to slow down and appreciate this life which I learned could end so abruptly. What started as a hobby soon became a passion. My late biological father was an accomplished photographer, as is the man I proudly call my Dad. My Uncle also worked as a cameraman for CNN for many years. So, you could say that photography is in my blood. Photography translates literally as light-writing. But for me, photography goes beyond mere visual duplication of a scene. It involves intimate immersion in my surroundings, and then intentionally capturing the perfect moment. When done well, it is art. This is why, despite modern cameras being able to achieve perfect exposure and focus automatically, the best gear frequently does not equate to the most meaningful images. I currently hold an active membership in the Professional Photographers of America, and have previously held memberships in the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and North American Nature Photographers Association. I am also an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop. I won numerous awards during the time I was an active member of the North Central Florida Photography Club, inclusive of seven monthly first places as well as a year-end first and third place award. My interests have traditionally been focused on nature, street, architecture and abstract photography. However, I have recently decided to transition my unique style to the capturing of people, events and weddings. There is a growing trend in weddings and events toward the photo-journalistic-style of coverage already present in street photography. I enjoy people, appreciate beauty, and would be honored to be the link between your special moments and the memories evoked with each viewing of your lasting images.
