Photography is just one of my hobbies, as I do have another day job. I grew up with a father who was a photographer, so I was around a studio, photo equipment, a darkroom, and chemicals. Yes those were the days before digital. I was many times his practice model for the new light meter. I started college majoring in art, but not photography in particular. Career and family took me in another direction, but now I am enjoying practicing my design and art background with digital photography. As far back as 1979, I was awarded the Seattle Times Kodak International Newspaper Snapshot Award. One of my travel photos was also chosen for publication in a table top photo book.
Photography for me in this new age of digital wonder is amazing. I like to see the whole, but the details of a subject are what really intrigue me. The small things, the ordinary things seen in an extraordinary way, the textures and the designs of nature are all fascinating. I hope to express some of these things in my photos, and provoke a memory or perhaps an emotion.
