Iíve been a photographer most of my life, starting very young with a Kodak Instamatic camera. There were a few others over some years and in my mid-twenties a Canon EOS 630 (film camera) which I used extensively. Then I quit for a while. Canít say I know why, life happens.
Some years ago I decided I would commit to what I knew had long been an important part of my life. It has been good in many ways, mostly because it lets me see the world around me as a place to enjoy and share. There is much that goes on around us that is negative and depressing, to say the least. It lifts my spirits to find other views that show there is much to be grateful for and much that others might find inspiring although they might never get the chance to see it, maybe because they can't get to that place or because that place may not exist in the future, at least not the way it is now.
As with many others, Ansel Adams had something to do with where they went with their art. In my case, what I learned is that there is a lot of work involved (if you want to do it well) before, during, and mostly, after an image is taken. A transformation takes place that, in my case, I take some pains to direct. To me, capturing the image, in itself, is an important but small part and is usually not enough. Not to say you can't get lucky, but at the very least, I try to make sure that what you see is of very high quality and that you won't be disappointed by the results.
I welcome any comments about my photographs or about the articles on my site
, as they are an opportunity to learn and grow. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to look at what I have to offer. Hopefully, you can take a few steps with me in our journey and view some of what I've had the fortune to experience. I hope your spirits are lifted by what I share with you and thank you for your support.
