Like many with an interest in photography, mine started by watching my father. My first 35mm camera was a Praktica, and in the mid 70's I "moved up" to a Canon AT-1 SLR 35mm. I was quite involved with photography in the 70's and 80's, including some darkroom work; however, for various reasons, photography took a back seat in the 90's.
My interest in photography was renewed several years ago, in part after experiencing a significant health issue. I am currently using a Canon 70D, Fuji X-T10, and Canon G1X, and have had some of my images appear in national and local magazines.
