I was introduced to photography by my Dad. The era of B&W was still King. Dad shot both portrait and nature landscape type images. He did use prints, but primarily shot slides. Dad was commercial printer and an artist in his own right.
I began my professional career(s) as a television producer. It is not that different to imagine what images you want on video tape to that you want on film. The advent of the digital world changed both greatly. I am currently attempting to "catch up" to it! My wife Deb (who is the professional of our duo) and I plan our vacations around areas of the country we wish to explore. It continues to be an eye opening experience and a lot of fun. My hope is that those who look at any of my photos experience the same emotions I did when I captured the image.
