"What education or work-related training do you have?"
I am completely self-taught in all areas. My knowledge has come from learning online and practicing in real world situations both through a combination of volunteering my time, second shooting for other photographers and paid work for clients, each with unique needs. No client, session or event is ever the same. I am a high school graduate, but never pursued photography academically. I was lucky to have natural talent, but would love the opportunity to strengthen my abilities via the work involved to obtain a degree. I'm most interested in obtaining a Photojournalism degree, but at this time, my busy business and home life doesn't allow much time for such endeavors. I learned to edit many, many years ago using first Photoshop 7, later progressing into using both Lightroom and Photoshop. I love to edit images to enhance what is already there, but am cautious to not go overboard, though I am capable of photo restoration and creative manipulations for clients by request and sometimes when the creative urge inspires me to do so.
