Bio

My first start in photography was in the 60's whereas I attended architecture school. Many of us students utilized our 35mm cameras to enhance our studies and our presentations. But soon, it seemed, I prefered to shoot not only the buildings but everything else that surrounded the resultants of steel and concrete. The fundamental elements for designing structures holds true for every artform. I still enjoy architecture. However, the freedom of photography and the lack of stress - who sues a photographer - makes the view through a lens and the adventure in the dark room very very enjoyable.

Two years ago, in 2007, after decades of minimal photography, I bought myself a Nikon and a good lens to take the last of an era of pictures of my youngest son who was in high school. Until then I took only occassional photos. Since he was like his older brother and sister who were very active I took untold images of soccer, basketball, and baseball as well as band and who knows what which required me to get up to speed pretty quick.

I have taken the freedom I feel shooting with a grain of salt. It is my intention to take it more seriously in the very near future. Not being formally schooled in photography I still have battles. Education in the methods of photography is in the near future. Not all digital images are good even though they are excellent. I feel that my digital images lack a certain photographic soul. It is my goal to find the spirit of what is good digital photography, if that is even possible. Just because I have the machine does not mean I have the vision. I am working on solving this issue.

Thus, in the end of all this, I must say that "I Like To Push The Shutter Button". I hope the results of my camera work pleases more than one of the senses.

Thank you for viewing.
