Lives in: Olney, MD


Social Media: 


Media and subjects: I am a portrait photographer interested in several genres including wild-life, landscape, macro and portraits.  I mainly shoot digital but recently took out my film camera from storage to experiment. 

Why you joined MAA:  I have recently transitioned from being a hobbyist to a professional photographer.  Starting a small business has been a challenging experience for me so far.  Joining MAA will give me networking opportunities with various artists and like-minded people in this area.  I feel this will be a good way of connecting with people and learning from them, especially the business side of it.  I am hoping to be able to share/exhibit my work in the coming months. Additionally, I love to teach.  I am hoping that I can get folks I interact with, equally excited in photography as I am. I would also love any volunteering opportunities connected with photography.  

Something fun about you: I have visited six continents so far and hope to visit the seventh (Antarctica) in the next 10-15 years. 
Artist Biography:  I am a scientist and photographer, living in Olney, MD for the last 15 years. I started my journey in my science career by looking through microscope lenses to study tiny cells.  My connection with lenses eventually evolved into my hobby of landscape, wild-life and macro photography. I have been fortunate to travel to six continents and capture unique and beautiful moments of life. Portrait photography is my latest passion. From Art to photography, portraits are fascinating because it tells us a story about the subject. My photography services include corporate and creative headshot, portrait, senior portraits, family portraits, pet photography and more.  I have been fortunate enough to have some of my portrait work published in artist magazines.  Since I am excited and love all genres of photography, I continue to explore wild-life, bird, landscape and macro photography in addition to portrait photography.  

I am so pleased to share several of my photographs with you.
