Started photography in 1975. Took photography classes. Learned black and white dark room. Did the transition to digital in 2005. Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.
I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.
