I developed my love for the "image" as a cild. My Aunt Louise Baker-Chandler, was a photographer and owned her own studio in N.W. Washington, D.C. back in the 1950's. My twin brother Donald and I were always the focus of picture-taking in my family. Since being identical twins assured us of a lifetime of attention, we developed an affinity for working behind the camera instead of in front of it.
