The desire to take photographs stems from Wade's childhood. He learned with film cameras and was always excited when picking up the developed film from the grocery store. He's owned various cameras over the years from children's 35mm cameras to Polaroid to entry-level film and digital SLRs. Tinkering with his grandfather's camera was also fun, especially when his grandfather didn't know. The big flash always seemed so neat to play with, especially when pointing it at siblings. Okay, so, he was a bit of a trouble-maker.

Now, Wade uses photography as a hobby and enjoys taking pictures of nearly everything. While his hobby started out as landscape and nature, he quickly found that he loves taking pictures of people, pets, and everything else.
