The first photograph I've ever taken was with one of those goofy Kodak 110 film cameras back in the early 70s. I inherited an old Leica 35mm when I was twelve. I consider myself a low-intermediate photographer.
I first got into digital photography back in 2000 when my company bought me a 2.3 megapixel Fujifilm FinePix point-and-shoot for our marketing department. It was cutting-edge back then! I have been mainly a point-and-shoot guy up until late 2007 when I bought my first DSLR--the Canon Rebel XT. I've owned a white Pentax KX DSLR for three years and recently upgraded to a Pentax K5.
I live in Rancho Cucamonga.
My name is William Claproth and I've worked in industrial marketing for over 20 years. I'm of Dutch Indonesian descent and we truly are the "last of the Mohicans".
Participating in The Urban Exposure Workshop was both a rewarding and worthwhile experience. Spending the day with Anthony Feliciano and the great group of digital photography enthusiasts that assembled that day (Saturday, May 26) helped bring out my creative side while sharpening my photography skills. I learned a great deal more about snapping candid pictures of people! I highly recommend this workshop for those willing to try something a little different.
