Essay:

After being diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1999, I looked for an outlet and found photography. Although my tremors can present some challenges with this medium, I am very thankful for the great things I have gained. Nature photography not only gives me the opportunity to relax and see the small things we often take for granted, it has also given me the opportunity to meet some great people through being involved in photography clubs.

One of the greatest opportunities I had was meeting a fellow photographer whose wife also has Parkinson's.Through him, I was able to get information and form a team of photographers for our local Moving Day event in Rome, GA.
