After spending the last 30 plus years as a newspaper photographer and photo editor it was time to get back to shooting. I recently left my dream job as a photo editor at the Virginian-Pilot to pursue a freelance career in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.
Prior to the Pilot I was a photographer at the Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg. It's been thrilling to start taking pictures again after my time as a photo editor. I'm hoping all the good Pilot photography has rubbed off on me.
