I have had an interest in photography since childhood, buying my first rangefinder camera, a Pentax ME Super, with hard earned newspaper delivery money. After high school I found myself maintaining film processing machines (ie., Kodak Versamat) and cameras in the US Air Force. Over the years I have taken images in studios, leaning out of open helicopter doors, as well as crime and accident scenes.
I was fortunate to be among the first to experience digital photography, shooting with the Nikon D1 as a quasi-photo-journalist and member of US Air Force Combat Camera units. I received some formal photography training while in the Air Force, however I spent the majority of my time managing public relations and base multimedia operations, so I wasn’t able to hone my skills to the degree I would like to have.
I’ve spent the last 18 years, following my retirement from the Air Force in 2004, continuing my recreational photography as a hobby. Making a lot of rookie mistakes, and being frustrated with my results. However, over the most recent few years, my passion for photography has been re-ignited to a new level. I have invested in my equipment to include the Nikon D750 and Z6, and I have added a 600mm lens to open new horizons in bird and other wildlife photography. While photographing people isn’t my specialty, I have produced a few noteworthy professional head-shots, and senior portraits for family. I have just started dabbling in Dog Photography, much to the chagrin of my loyal Brittany Spaniel model, Kozmo.
Keep checking in, as I hope to continue refining my skills and sharing more images of the beautiful State of Vermont and surrounding area, as well as images of my more distant travels.
