As an artist, I’ve chosen photography as my vehicle in allowing the viewer a glimpse into how I interpret life, all the while hoping to show a different perspective than one might expect. Photography has been a near-lifelong passion for me. I started out with a cheap box film camera in the mid-1950’s, photographed Vietnam in the mid-1960’s, worked as a photo lab technician 1970-2005, picked up a digital camera and joined a camera club in 2006. Joining the camera club taught me the skills and discipline needed to be a good photographer.
Although I’ve worked with film, I now devote most of my energy creating digital images. These digital images are then fine-tuned using various software packages. Then the work is sent to a professional photo lab for prints.
I’m what is considered a “generalist” photographer. A generalist is one who photographs a variety of subjects. Although I’ve found my passion in photographing nature, abstracts, and travel, I’ve also been known to photograph street scenes, extreme close-ups, and portraits—in other words, just about anything. I’ve found that doing so helps to keep me motivated and provides me with a large subject list.
