I am happy to have founded PPS based on the feedback and interest I have had with the Photo Shoots and Work Shops I have organized in the last twelve years. I would like to extend a big welcome to all who join the Pacific Photographic Society!

I have been an avid photographer for many years. I began seriously with film photography in 1973, learning to develop film and print photos. I went digital in 2004, and specialize in commercial architectural photography. I have been a member since 2005 and have been organizing photo shoots in San Diego since 2006. I am also a bibliophile who enjoys cooking, travel, hiking, swimming, classical music, a wide variety of art. I am very good at taking naps.

What aspect of photography do you enjoy?

I specialize in architectural photography, both exterior and interior. I am NPPA, NPS, PPA and PPC member. I also enjoy landscape, macro, nature, night, portrait, travel, event and wildlife photography. One aspect of PPS I really enjoy is the variety of different photography we do.
