I’ve been fascinated with cameras since I was a young child. I started with a Kodak box camera and then graduated to an Instamatic, taking pictures at family gatherings, weddings and parties. My passion continued through college, where I had a roommate who was the yearbook photographer. He introduced me to the 35 mm format. In my senior year of college I purchased a used Nikkormat, which was my constant companion for 10 years. I have stuck with Nikon since that time.
Over the years, I continued my picture taking of friends and family, and travel. Most recently, my resume included 6 years experience shooting over 10,000 pictures for the Council Rock South Marching Band and Orchestra. These pictures encompassed local events, football games and international trips with the students to Ireland and Italy. I also did 2 years as school photographer for the Council Rock South Hockey teams.
I dabbled in some wedding photography for a short time.
In last 8 years, I have traveled extensively, fulfilling my “bucket-list”, visiting Ireland, Italy/Sicily, Spain, Jordan and Machu Picchu, Peru.
My approach to picture taking leans towards the photo-journalistic style rather than posed studio shots. I profess to be a purist in my picture taking, with minimal “Photoshopping”.
