I began my photography adventure when I was six or seven. My mother took a photography class at the local community college and I would accompany her when she went out to shoot for class assignments. I asked to try out the camera, a fully manual Pentax K1000 35mm film camera, and she explained the basics and encouraged me to give it a try. Many years later I still find photography as exciting as I did back then, and I am thankful that I’ve been able to build a life where I have the freedom to be able to travel to interesting places and try to capture my impressions.
I live on the Jersey Shore with my daughter and two cats, Kodak and Leica.
People often ask what sort of gear I shoot with. I maintain that it’s not the camera that is the most important part of but that it’s the photographer that makes a compelling image. It’s true, though, that good tools make the process easier.
