I’m a professional programmer and geek. I spent 20 years in the Air Force, so I travelled a lot. I Loved the time I spent in central Italy. Originally a Brooklyn Boy but am happy I finally settled here in Sunny San Diego! Twice retired and still working, I’m looking for a way to get into photography full time and still pay the bills.

What aspect of photography do you enjoy?

I am interested in nature and concert photography. My photographer heroes are: Todd Owyoung – one of the most awesome Concert photographers around - http://www.ishootshows.com/ Peter Lik – landscapes, self-taught, he is the master of light - http://www.lik.com/thework.html David Lloyd – captivating wildlife close-up work - http://davidlloyd.info/galleries/

What equipment do you use?

I recently sold all my Canon gear and am using a Sony A7. Love this full frame mirrorless marvel!

What are your expectations for joining PPS?

I want to learn it all: the technical stuff; training an artistic eye; gaining confidence and composure when the shots really matter; and have fun! Also, to make some new friends with common interests.

What are your favorite places to shoot?

Concerts, Zoos, Outdoor fairs and festivals.

Introduction

I’m an amateur shutterbug.
