Photojournale : Photo documentary and photo journal stories from around the world
My passion for photography was ignited 25 years ago when I was a student at
RIT in Rochester, NY. Although I was a computer science major, I was fortunate
to study with some of the best photographers in the world. My freshman
roommate was a photography student (photog major). He came in from England
because RIT was located in the same town as Kodak and is known worldwide as
one of the best photography schools in the nation. Thank you Mark for sharing
your excitement and enthusiasm about photography. It was you who helped me
understand that what is in the viewfinder are more than just images.
My love for the outdoors and travel enhances my photographic experience. I
love to hike and be outside. I find myself going on business trips from time
to time. When I do, I take the weekends to travel and explore wherever I am. I
always have my camera with me. When we go on family trips, my family members
make fun of me because I am always taking so many photos.
I am originally from NY, and I still have a hard time taking candids of
people. I’m always afraid that they will get upset and kill me. Occasionally,
I will see a child with a big smile and cannot help myself. Because of this
insecurity, I tend to focus on nature, wildlife and architecture. When I
travel to new cities, I am always in awe of the local architecture. I am still
learning how to photograph buildings.
For the last 18 months, I have been associated with the Colorado Restuarant
Association, Blacktie-Colorado, Event Savant and other companies who have been
gracious enough to provide actual paying assignments. I have been proving
myself as more than a landscape and wildlife photographer. Please visit my
Digital Railroad gallery for examples of some of these assignments. I am
available for assignment work.
Living in Colorado is a blessing. I live within an hour or two of some of the
most spectacular scenery and wildlife in the country. Day trips over the years
have helped me in so many ways. Obviously, they lead to great photo taking
People find different ways to escape. Some like to exercise, others like to
hunt or fish to relax, yet others find peace in music. I find the most
pleasure sitting and waiting for the perfect light at the end of the day. The
‘Golden Light’ as some call it. There is something about the warmth of the sun
at the end of the day. Sometimes this is in the Rocky Mountains. Other times
it is on a beach or on a hike.
My photographs express what I feel as well as see.
Enjoy my photos, they are a reflection of my soul.
