I started taking photographs when I was around 12 when I went to Washington, DC on a class trip. I had a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, my father gave to me. I think it was his camera originally and I still have it. I did not take photography seriously though until I went into the Navy and was stationed in WestPAC, Vietnam campaign. I went to school on the GI bill, graduated from Brooks Institute, majored in illustration. I ended up in the electronics industry, another passion of mine. I am currently working in an “electronic test equipment engineering and manufacturing firm” as a Manufacturing Engineer and the Quality Manager.
As you can see from my work, I enjoy photographing flowers, macro’s of anything interesting, landscapes and started to work with High Dynamic Range Imaging and Tone-mapping. Up until 2005, I used my trusty Nikon F Photomic. Since film was rather expensive, I limited my picture taking. But in 2005 I purchased my D70s which set me free. Most of which you see in my collection will be digital photos. I have since upgraded to a Nikon D300 and loving it.
