Your Bio

I’m frequently asked how I got into photography and how the Grand City Images web site came about. Here’s the story.

My interest in photography began in middle school as a yearbook photographer. At that point I learned how to take and develop 35mm black and white photos. I continued with black and white photography all the way through college. I spent a lot of time trying out new ideas and mastering a variety of techniques. I used light, filters, motion, composition, and depth of field to make my subjects interesting. Photography was a wonderful artistic outlet for those times when my mind needed a break from studying. It’s a hobby that I shared with Rick, my college boyfriend who is now my husband.

After college graduation access to a darkroom went away. Rick and I got busy raising our family and building careers. We still enjoyed photography, but other priorities rose to the top.

Now, fast forward about 20 years. My whole family is involved in the Grand City Show Skiers team. Rick drives the twin rig boat, our son skis, and our daughter is a safety pinner and rope handler. I found an exciting new reason to use my photography skills as the team photographer.

My camera is my avenue into sports. I keenly watch each athlete’s movements and work to capture them at exactly the right moment. It’s a great way to be involved with my family, meet new people, and have a lot of fun with my camera. Grand City Images grew out of a demand for my water ski pictures.

My camera goes almost everywhere I go so I end up with a lot more than just water ski pictures. Rick and I really enjoy photo hikes. We also like to capture action shots of our friends racing on their bikes. Grand City Images has a variety of water ski, racing, nature pictures, and more. Poke around and you’ll find pictures by both Rick and me.

I hope you enjoy this web site and come back often to see what’s new.
