CMA Desert Belle Cruise - Saguaro Lake
Well, here's the group shot of the CMA Saguaro Lake Cruise Outing 2013. A big thanks to Russ Glindmeier for all the effort in organizing the event. It would be nice if someone could write up an name list for this pic, I'd work on it myself but I'm hard up for spare time right now.
Here's one from a recent boat trip on Saguaro Lake courtesy of Russ Glindmeier. I thought I'd post this as a reminder of the CMA Outing Saturday, May 4th, 2013, 5:00 PM Saguaro Lake, Arizona, on the Desert Belle Tour Boat. Check the forum for more info.

A nice selection of desert plants including Brittle Brush, Saguaro, Hedgehog, and Barrel cactus. Photographed along the southern face of the Superstition Mountains.
The Three Sisters
I went out looking for a colorful sunset but made due with the abundant spring color all around the Superstition Mountains.
A bit about myself...
I have been working as a pro photographer for over 25 years. I began as a graphic artist but felt I needed different experiences each day rather than the same office, same desk, 9-5.
In my first full time position with a travelling family portrait company, I covered over 30 US states, shooting up 100 families daily. Since then I have owned 2 portrait studios, and a school portrait franchise servicing the needs of public and private schools.
I look at myself primarily as a portrait photographer but love to travel and document culture and landscapes. I spent two years in Alaska, shooting from Ketchikan in the south, to Point Barrow, the northern-most tip of North America. It was great. But I also spent two years in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. I think my favorite location might be where I am at the time, and I've been here in Arizona for a little over 10 years.
I currently work as a freelance portrait photographer and travel as often as possible. I also spend time as a moderator for Travel Photographers Network.
