MPA: Why do you love photography?

PA: I love the outdoors! Photography gets me out and allows me to create.  Behind the lens, it is a different world!  When I download and open my images, it is Christmas all over!

MPA: Your favorite thing about MPA?

PA:  I was able to move off of “auto” very quickly after reading the book and attending my first class at MPA.  Having the basics is so important.  Now I am applying advanced techniques that I’m learning on the PEN website.

MPA: Your favorite trip or course with MPA?

PA: Being a landscape and wildlife photographer, the Winter Yellowstone trip was amazing and the addition of Animals of Montana made this trip the best photography experience I have had so far.

MPA: Your aspirations as a photographer / artist?

PA:  he McKay team has given me the confidence in my work to enter into the professional arena. I will definitely will be joining the Professional Photography of America soon.

MPA: Where do you look forward to traveling next?

PA: Of course…An Africa Safari would be my dream trip!
