A Brownie Scout was the first camera I ever picked up. It had been my father's. He'd used it while serving in the Army in Korea during the war. I soon developed a real knack for a hobby that has now become my passion.
My sister has that camera now so of course I searched for one which I found in great condition. I will go back to using that camera even with all the photographic equipment I have acquired over the years because it's what sparked the fire in me.
I have always had a passion for photography & having a real eye for the end result! Quick on the shutter & great at anticipating the candid shot. Having since graduated into more sophiscated equipment & finally even giving into the digital age, my abilities are continually being challenged. B&W, wet plate & dark room techniques have been learned & still preferred over digital. Robert Capa, Eugene Atget & Ansel Adams are people I have always considered artistic phenoms with the limited equipment that was available during their time.
My preferences to shoot are: candid, events, macro, nature, people..... & the list goes on. I love to sit on a park bench or door stoop and randomly shoot with my 300-500mm lens. The results have been some of the best and my favorite candids. I am now in the process of launching my website soon in early 2012 and will be using a name to be posted here and the link after it is. So.... keep checking and thanks for stopping by in the meantime.
