Many years ago I purchased a camera that did not have an auto mode, a used Nikon D2x.  That camera trained me well,  made me really love and respect photography.  In the beginning I shot local musician live,  mainly one guy named Jason Dean.  Jason exposed me to many people and we went to a lot of places.  After some time I started shooting events and local fundraisers.  I now photograph a lot of real estate, portraits, Parties, wedding, products Its been a fun ride.  Sometimes I wonder what if I never bought that D2x, what if I never got that call from Jason.
