For me it all began some 50 years ago when I purchased my first 35mm film SLR camera a Canon FDb. Eventually I built my own darkroom and began processing black & white photos occasionally dabbling in color slides. For the next 15 years I tried to perfect my craft through taking and analyzing photos, increasing my knowledge from books and photography classes.
Since raising a family and trying to make a living was paramount, photography took a back seat over the next 25 years. After I retired, I returned to fully focusing on photography and embraced the digital technology that has transformed the landscape in photography. I began digitizing my archive of analog photographs, which provided a creative jolt that inspired me to renew my life as a photographer.
Presently, the camera is my constant companion so I never to miss an opportunity to capture a slice of time, a place or the richness of life. It’s such a part of me, friends and family no longer ask “why did you bring that camera?” Now that I’ve returned to photography, my love for it has become renewed.
