I can remember having a camera as far back as July 4th, 1976. I got my first SLR in 1987 and my world really changed. I started seeing the world in a new way. In 2004 I made the leap to digital and started my business, Wilson Photography. Since this time I've specialized in portraits and have recently made a big push into the commercial/industrial side of things. Around 2009 I founded the Four State Photography Enthusiasts (FSPE), is a group for photographers of any age and skill level. We have meetings in my studio once a month, it's always educational and always free. I feel that the strength of the photography community is in sharing. Our meetings average around 25 members but our FaceBook presents lays claim to over 2000 members worldwide. I've also been a guest speaker at Crowder College and Missouri Southern State University (MSSU). Photography has become my life.
