My name is Gary Young. I'm an aspiring photographer (among other things) in Oakton, VA.

Nature, wildlife, portraits and candid photography are my favorite. Basically, I just like taking photos. I'm not picky about the subject matter.

I think the best photos of people are ones when they're free and natural. There are some but very few who can pose and look natural and appealing on command. It's definitely an admirable talent and a skill.

I want to show all of us regular people out there that we have a good side. We have a story. Our moments are special and are worthy of occasionally capturing and sharing.

I've noticed that photography changes the way I see and experience the world.

That's a very good thing.
