Biography

 

 

"Photographers deal in things

which are continually vanishing

and when they have vanished

there is no contrivance on earth

which can make them come back again."

 

Tom Noonan 

I first became interested in photography in high school. My skills and desire became more intense during the time I was in the service and purchased my first 35mm SLR. Having taught photography at the high school level and in combination with the introduction of digital, I have been reinvigorated again. Plus, with the added flexibility and creativity of Lightroom and Photoshop it allows visually creative photographers to explore new boundaries.

I have been a member of Upper Cape Camera Club for eight years and attended the NECCC Conference for five years. I have judged and presented at many clubs on and off cape in the past few years.
