I became interested in photography when I watched my grandfather making prints in his darkroom. I was 10 years old. I remember it well, my first visit to his darkroom, because that was the first, and last time I turned on the light, ruining a black and white print. My grandfather, to his credit, simply laughed. From then on he taught me how to make consistently excellent black and white prints. For the next 35 years I learned all I could as a 'traditional' photographer shooting color as well as B & W.

Today photography has evolved to higher technology, digital. This has had the single most profound affect in photography since the introduction of 35mm cameras. Not wanting to totally abandon traditional photography, I combined both technologies. Using both together has allowed me to expand my subjects. I scanned thousands of slides and negatives before I bought my digital camera. Whereas I shot only landscapes, I now shoot travel, commercial/industrial subjects, sports, and also create special effects.

Now is an exciting time to be in photography, with the latest technologies and software available one is only limited by his or her imagination. If a photograph stirs but just one person's emotions, then it has succeeded.
