Welcome to the Surfandturfphoto.com page!
Thank you for checking out my website. Photography has become a real passion for me. I used to take documentation photos with a point-and-click camera, as part of past profession, but they had no artistic value. I likely took 30,000+ photos of "Stuff" without any artistry to what I was capturing. I never had a real artistic talent like the ability to draw, etc. To this day I can't draw a stick figure without others questioning what it is.
It wasn't until I was doing a side job for my friends parents on Edisto Island, SC and at lunch I decided to take a photo of one of the grand oak trees on their property. This particular tree is documented to be well over 400 years old (it is in my portfolio photos). What I captured excited me. It was likely the first photo that I took with any type artistic value to it. I printed a copy and put it in a cheap frame and stared at it for a number of years. I told myself that one day I would invest in a decent camera and follow my passion for photography. Five years (nearly to the day of taking that photo) later I finally pulled the trigger to purchase a real DSLR. I haven't put it down since. I shoot every chance I get, whether it be sports, portraits (people and pets), scenic or whatever else my eye sees that is interesting. Join me in viewing some of the moments in time I have captured. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy capturing it!
