Photography – Pasadena, Texas and Surrounding Areas

Photography is my passion! And, it has opened many doors for me. Besides exhibiting and selling some of my works, I have also had the opportunity to share my passion with others.

Today, I did just that as I presented at the Pasadena _MG_2065 coSouth Rotary Club meeting in Pasadena, Texas. The interest shared by the group of about 25 business owners and community members fueled me as I shared stories of a few of the photographs I have taken in their area. As a former Rotarian (soon to rejoin the club), I share the desire to network and provide resources for the community.

I appreciate my friend, Rhonda Parmer of Pasadena ISD, for the opportunity to share with the Rotary Club today!





My Photography Passion

I was asked to teach Continuing Education photography class at a local college. I am very honored to be a part of this program. When I look back on my photography experience, it is easy to remember when I developed a passion for photography.

From the time I was eight years old, I wanted to take pictures. Mostly, I loved seeing the collections of old photographs my grandmothers on both sides of my family had collected. Those old photographs always lead to discussion about family history. I loved those discussions!

After a series of less serious cameras, I bought my Self-Portrait | Flickr - Photo Sharing!Minolta X700. (I still have that camera! More on that topic in a future post.) From that point on, I started learning to see my world differently. In doing so, I wanted to capture my world to reflect on my experiences and to share with anyone who might be interested. So began a lifetime of learning about photography and now about digital photography.

I pray that I am able to live up to the expectations of my students as we grow together and share our common desire to use a camera for whatever purpose.

Tomorrow starts my formal path to teaching photography. I am excited!
