Scott, I never knew we shared the same passion!
Your work is amazing and I hope you are enjoying every minute of it. Expressing yourself through a lens is only something that few know how to do. If you ever want to share tips and tricks feel free to e-mail me or check out my site!
I can't wait to see more of your work. From the mouth of Ansel himself... "Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art!"
Good luck in all your endevors!
