My mom was taking some community college photography classes when I was 14 and she took me into the darkroom with her. It was love at first develop (which is ironic since I haven't been in a darkroom for a few years now). I took classes in high school and went on to earn a BFA in Photography.
Do you bring back-up gear to shoots?
Absolutely! Getting back-up gear (or even borrowing from a friend to have on hand) is essential. Back-up batteries (I have more than I could ever use) for my camera and flash are just as important.
Did you go to school to become a photographer?
I went to Brigham Young University and got a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, but I know many incredible photographers that didn't go to school at all.

I use Lightroom for all batch-processing and Photoshop for fine-tune editing. Everything that gets blogged or printed has been through both programs.
Do you use actions?
