I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I started in my pre teen years with a Kodak box camera. It was the family camera at the time, but I spent a lot of time with it! Later, I built my own darkroom after I moved up to 35mm positives slides and negatives. Guess I didn’t have much patience to wait on a commercial developer.
I particularly enjoy nature, wildlife and landscape photography, although I’ve dabbled some in various other generes. I like capturing images of almost anything outdoors. Since converting to digital photography I have been using photoshop and lightroom. I’ve always used the latest and greatest versions of these amazing programs!
I also enjoy doing photo restoration and repair. It amazes me to see the transformation from faded, creased, torn, stained, etc. images back to their somewhat original state. Sometimes even nicer than original!
I am also a FAA licensed private pilot and a FAA licensed drone pilot. Years ago, during my days with my film cameras, I did a lot of aerial photography. Mostly from small, high wing cessna aircraft. I’m now enjoying doing my aerial work with my Phantom 4 Pro drone.
So, welcome, look around and enjoy my work! If you have any questions, you can reach me through my contact page and I’ll get right back to you! Feel free to leave any comments! Like and share anything you enjoy while you’re here!
