took my first photo in high school, back in ancient times when we used Plus-X
and Tri-X film and printed on photo paper using an enlarger. The excitement
when I saw my very first print magically appear on the paper in a bath of
chemicals was the coolest thing ever! I was hooked.
It makes me old just thinking about it!
college I was an avid photographer shooting nature, friends, and just about
everything else. I was the photo editor of my college newspaper, which gave me access
to the all-important darkroom.
My career, marriage and
family took me out of photography for a number of years but sometime in the mid
2000's my creative instincts kicked into gear.
The camera came out and the shutter finger got strong again.
also very much enjoy taking shots of the things we never really notice in our
day-to-day lives, such as a beautiful sunset, an island beach, or lighted hula
hoops twirling against a dark background. Pretty cool stuff.
photography is my specialty. My role is to create memories and it’s one of the
most personally satisfying things I do with my camera.
I have had a lot
of fun over the years with my photography. I’ve been a newspaper photographer,
won prizes at the San Diego County Fair, taught classes and am a graduate of
the University of California, San Diego extension’s certificate program called “Photography:
Images and Techniques”. I’ve been a member of the Professional Photographer’s
of America since 2016.
