I have been interested in photography since childhood. My first 35mm camera was completely manual requiring a separate light meter. I moved on from there as cameras became more sophisticated. While I never had the opportunity to do darkroom work, digital photography has allowed me to further expand my skills. At this time in my life I now have the time to further pursue my interests. Most of my early photography was done during family trips and later my own travels, which I still enjoy. I find great satisfaction in returning from a trip with an image worthy of enlargement and display. I also enjoy the energy and dynamism of New York City and I am exploring photography of the people and scenery of this great city.
