Hi. Thank you for viewing my artwork here at RedBubble. My photography business goes under the name of Mitchell R. Grosky Photography, but please feel free to call me Mitch.
I am a freelance photographer in a small town in Central Massachusetts. I have been in love with photography and taking photos of people and places since I bought my first film Pentax Super Program SLR back about 35 years ago. Now, nearly all of my photography is Digital, via my Nikon D700, Nikon D90, Canon Rebel XT1i, and even my pocketable Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. In addition, I have owned digital cameras from Olympus and Sony, but I would have to say that Nikon is my camera of choice. I use Nikkor lenses generally, my Nikkor VR 18-200 3.5-5.6 and my Nikkor VR 16-35 getting most of my attention. My Canon is generally a backup, and I keep a Canon 18-55 zoom on it, but I sometimes replace it with the image-stabilized ultrasonic 75-300 lens or the 1.8 50mm lens.
For developing, I enjoy working in my digital darkroom, using Picasa for quick jpegs, and Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3, Photoshop Elements (6.0) and Nikon NX2 for most of my publishable work which I most often photograph in the raw format. For in-house printing, I generally use either my Canon i9900 or my Canon Pixma iP4600.
I have recently retired as an elementary school principal, although I still occasionally serve as an interim or substitute principal in our District. Before that, I was an elementary and middle school teacher for 29 years. I have always been known for my photos of children in the classroom, and the walls of my schools came alive with nearly a thousand 5×7 and 8×10 photos of children excited by their learning.
My wife, who has recently retired as a middle school special needs teacher, and I love to travel, and over the past 30 years we have cruised to Canada, nearly every island in the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, and Europe (numerous times). At times we have traveled with my daughter, an early childhood teacher and my son, who works at a local supermarket and enjoys drawing, acting, and, comedy.
My travels have provided me with the material for nearly a quarter of a million photos, and hours upon hours of joy.
Upon my retirement, I set off on a whirlwind 27 day cross-country trip from Boston as far west as Wyoming and Utah and then back. 8000 miles and nearly 9000 photos later, I am hoping to one day find a publisher who is interested in a photography book narrating my experiences. I revisited many of those same sites (and added a few more) in the fall of 2011, as my family and I spent two weeks in Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.
In retirement, I have dropped the wedding and portrait area of my photography business in order to focus exclusively on landscape, nature, and travel photography.
I am very interested in your comments and would welcome any constructive criticism. Please tell me what you like, and what just doesn’t work for you. If you have any suggestions or tips, I would love to hear them.
