About Me

I enjoy and have a curiosity about many types of photography, and also enjoy sharing knowledge and ideas. I work as a full time shooter selling fine art at nationally ranked art shows and licensing stock images into publication around the world.

About Me

Joined ABCPS in 1970. Have served as Secretary and Newsletter editor. Started early with Photoshop, and still do a lot with computer graphics. I think there is nothing like a fine Kodachrome slide, but have been completely digital for some years.

About Me

Born & raised in East Freedom. Graduated from Central High in June 68. In December 68 I received a letter saying that Uncle Sam wanted me. It was so nice to be wanted, NOT! I was an Infantryman in Vietnam from June 69 to June 70. Then I was a Finance clerk in Germany from July 70 to March 72. With everything considered the Army was a good experience, it brought about many positive changes in my character. I worked for the Commonwealth in Harrisburg for 32 years. The job was good, made lots of good friends but I "hated" Harrisburg. I am so happy to be out of there and back in East Freedom.

Retirement is so wonderful that I hope everyone gets to experience it.

I have been "playing" with photography for a long time. As a teenager I shot a few rolls with a Kodak Brownie. I was hooked but could not afford the hobby. While in the Army I purchased a Yashica Electro 35 Rangefinder. It was a very good camera. After the Army the Yashica broke and since I was unemployed I could not afford repairs or a new camera. So I took a 10 year break. Then in 1984 I purchased a Minolta X700 camera. And since then I have gone through a series on Minolta cameras. Then Minolta became Konica-Minolta. I purchased a Konica-Minolta 7D, a 6.1MP digital SLR. When it was time to upgrade to a new camera Konica-Minolta had been sold to Sony. The future of the Minolta lens mount was then in question. So I switched to Nikon with the purchase of a Nikon D80. Sony decided to keep the Minolta lens mount and since have produced some interesting SLRs, but nothing yet to entice me back. I still use the Konica-Minolta 7D.

About Me

I love to take pictures and the ABC Photo Society shows me the best way to do that.  Every time I attend their meetings, I meet more members and enjoy their work.  At the last meeting, November 15, 2010, Eric Gaston showed my video of Legion Park called  "A Walk in the Park"  and other spectacular scenes taken by the members on photo shoots along with   the special Triathlon conducted by the Hollidaysburg YMCA. :)  Thanks to the ABC Photo Society, I keep on learning more about what I love to do!
