On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you describe your photographic skill level?

I would consider my skill level as a 7+ to 8. Shot film for many years and was reluctant to move to digital. However when chemicals had an effect on family, moved to digital and never turned back. Now shooting with a Leica M9 and a Sony NEX 6.

What kind of activities would you like to see this group organize in the future?

When I taught in the schools, I attempted to get others interested in my work. I would like to continue this work within an organization. I taught one class for about two hours one day a week and took them on various field trips.

Were you referred to this site by an existing member of this group?


Are you passionate about your art, and are you committed to utilizing your talents in order to facilitate improvements to the living conditions of those less fortunate?

Absolutely. I think that my previous answers help to answer this question.

Would you be willing to volunteer your time as a member of our Leadership Team in order to advance the cause of this organization?

Since I am retired, I do have time to volunteer and it would be a pleasure to be part of a Leadership Team.


I am a retired attorney who has been taking photographs since age 13, when I built my own darkroom. For over 10 years I was a volunteer going to various elementary schools teaching the basics of photography to students with cameras I provided.
