I got my start in photography with a Yashica SLR as a high school graduation gift from my father. My interest in photography grew when I moved to San Francisco, CA in the 70’s and saw all the great images that were waiting to be captured on film. Shortly after that, I enrolled in various photographic workshops and discovered that with just a small investment in equipment, I could process my own black and white film and prints.
The battle between the day job and the hobby was eventually won by the day job, and I put the camera down for several years. I moved to Nebraska in the 80’s and found a job cutting production mats for Thomas Mangelsen. Tom’s images provided the motivation I needed to get back into photography. I started entering various photo contests and won the local version of the Kodak “K.I.N.S.A.” contest twice.
I did some photography and writing in the early 90’s for the short-lived River City Sports Newspaper. About the time the paper shut down, I discovered the World Wide Web and started learning HTML in order to create my own online photo gallery.
I got married and relocated to the east coast and discovered a whole new world of photographic possibilities. Now all I needs is the time to capture it all.
