Billie Leckey I was raised in Redondo Beach California and then moved to Redlands when my children Megan and Robert were infants. As my children have grown up, I have always carried a camera with me and have been photographing life events and the unique things that I seem to have the eye for.I got my first camera, a Canon AE1, from my dad as a Christmas gift in 1986 (I still have it). I got an Olympus point and shoot digital camera in 2005 to photograph my teen-ager's swim meets and high school activities. My daughter's senior year of High School, my dad bought me a Canon Rebel XS as an early birthday present. That camera broadened my photography eye and I began to carry it with me everywhere.Wherever I found an interesting item or a cool shot I would stop and photograph it, even pull over off the side of the road to get my shot.I found out about the Redlands Camera Club on line and decided to join the group to learn new things about photography. I have learned so much and I have enjoyed the experience gained from being a part of this organization. Last year (2011), I was able to upgrade to a Canon 7D. I am a firm believer in that "the best camera ever to own is the one you carry with you." I enjoy shooting photojournalism subjects and interesting things that people may not think to capture and turn it into art.
