Some of you may know, I’m also a freelance photographer for a few major publications.

As a matter of fact, I’m teaching a workshop today called “Every Picture Tells a Story” to veterans with PTSD at the Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital in St. Louis. I’ll recap last week and today’s class, and post highlights on my blog in a few days.
Hubby and I delved into underwater photography about ten years ago. Add to that, our experience with landscapes, nature, and people.
We love what we do, and cherish meeting new people along the way. If you sit and observe your surroundings, you’ll discover the coolest (or scariest) things about individuals.
On assignment on Eleuthera in 2011, we found a picturesque harbor while driving along the ocean road at Tarpum Bay. While snapping photos of the weathered dock, the seagulls, and an elderly woman scaling fish, I heard a voice from behind. As I turned around, a local woman clothed in dirty shorts, a tank top, wearing dusty sandals, scowled at me. Shaking her label-less bottle filled with a caramel-color liquid, she declared, “I’ll have you deported!”
Of course, it was the Bahamas, and what she said really didn’t make sense, but I still have that image of what she was wearing, the location, and her demeanor forever etched in my head.
So, you see, every picture does tell a story.
