I was always interested in art. I became interested in photography when my aunt gave me a Kodak simple reflex camera...the kind you hold at waist level and look down through the viewfinder. I took it to school and asked my teacher to pose the class.
I always gain inspiration, knowledge, networking and new friends from any group.
Connie Imboden (contemporary from Baltimore). Lotte Jacobi, Edward Weston, Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson. I interviewed Lotte Jacobi and wrote an article. Cole Weston gave me one of his father's prints. I won a Cartier-Bresson contest
I know I'll find inspiration, learning, networking and new friends. And I hope to share some of my knowledge and perspective with others.
Great group with lots of knowledge and passion to share.
