How would you describe your interest in photography? Or, are you involved with photography in some other form?

I learned photography when film was all there was, well before the advent of digital photography. Events conspired to lead me away from photography for a few years, and when I picked it back up, a lot had changed. My photography skills are still in advance of my digital darkroom skills, but I have been making progress on that front. Although I do some professional work, my photography doesn't pay the bills, nor do I want it to. I enjoy having the freedom to work on personal projects without having to worry about trying to find the next customer.

What type of photography do you enjoy the most?

Professionally, I 'm focused on portraiture and documentary photography, but I also enjoy shooting the occasional wedding. I also enjoy street photography and, when I'm fortunate enough to travel, I like travel photography, too.

Do you use a DSLR , a film, point-and-shoot camera or a combination?

I use Nikon DSLRs. I may try my hand at a large format film camera some day, but for now I'm strictly digital.

What would you like to get out of our organization?

The opportunity to meet other photographers, share information and images, socialize, and participate in some advanced-level workshops.

A lot of work goes into planning these events. Can we depend on you to show up to an event if you RSVP?

If I say that I'll be there, I'll be there.


I would like to be a part of a network of photographers who share skills, opportunities, and experiences.
