I try to capture what is right there to see.
Sometimes the situation is small,
but usually just common.
How I Got Here
At about the age of seven, I bought my first camera and loved it. When I first saw a print appear in the developer at about ten, I was hooked. In high school as editor of the yearbook, I also produced many of the photographs.
Though I started college in electrical engineering, my interest in photography continued and thus, when I realized that I really did not want to be an engineer, the logical direction was photography.
While studying at the Institute of Design in Chicago under Aaron Siskind and Arthur Siegel, I worked for IBM part-time and got involved with the world of computers … so that’s the job route I took. As it turned out, the training in design and systematic thinking proved totally valuable in that world.
Following an early retirement and a move to Virginia, I have resumed a more serious pursuit of photography.
