Please look at my Collections and Stories! I welcome any honest critique as I don't think we do enough of that here at JPGmag. If you don't favorite or comment, I will remove the image (a way to prune out the losers :-)

I enjoy seeing other photographers fuel their passion. I occasionally teach photography techniques to new photographers, and blog about my passion for this art form.
