I first became interested in photography when my twin sons were born in the early 1960's. I was in the service at the time and there was no such thing as cash flow. My first camera was a Ricoh rangefinder that I purchased at a pawn shop for $35.00. I worked my way up from that first camera to a Minolta slr, to a Nikkormat, to Nikon's F2,F4,F5 learning all the while.A few years ago I started over in the realm of digital capture and the learning curve started over.
I am totally enthralled with the digital experience. I capture five times more images than with negative film in so doing my composition and eye for what I see have improved.I believe i;ve learned more in these last few years than in the preceding decade.
The digital darkroom,photoshop, lightroom, layers, et al are making the final product a more fulfilling experience than negative film. There is alot of satisfaction in seeing the final product of a shoot which provides the motivation to keep shooting and keep learning.
My interest in landscape and nature still life photography evolves out of a lifetime interest in the outdoors. Fishing,hunting,and snowshoeing. Since I was very young I've had the pleasure of experiencing a great deal of the pristine north american landscape and portions of the european alps. In the past several years I've lived intermittently in northern New Mexico with its long tradition of photography and its special quality of light. New Mexico has inspired numerous forays with the camera and personal new discoveries in subject matter.
