About Me

Teaching/Photojournalist/Programmer

services

Photojournalist

My first love is photography.  I spending 14 years shooting everything from house fires to Bengal tigers. It was a fun ride that still has me shooting virtually everything. Two cameras with me most of every minute of my waking days. I find it a thrill beyond words to capture history in images that move those around you days or even years later.

Programming is a second line of learning for me. I have always had my hand in some form of computers either fixing or building them since high school. My dad and I took classes in computer programming at the local high school. I started on RadioShack TRS-80 to peak my interest and by todays standards its very hard to convey to students. That crazy start is what lead me into a field that was to be an eventual marraige of two careers into one. Who would have thought in those early days that the camera would eventually be digital.

Teacher

My early years with the newspaper introduced me to the using computers to develop images and eventually to pagination of their use in print. Learning to make separations for individual images then to full pages and on to double trucks. It was a great learning experience. It sounds odd but I was using the computer long before switching over to a digital camera. My early intrest really meant that I had a little foot hold in the field before from my college years.

Making that switch

Moving from Newspapers to the digital world was a big step and one which eventually lead me to teaching. The digital world is one where you can be more mobile and still explore the possibilities that is the electronic world. Traveling the country with tradeshow exhibits. Allowed me to see the country. Its opened many new doors including teaching which brought a smile to my dads face. He taught, his dad taught, his mother taught, my mother taught as did her mother and grandmothers sisters and brothers. So the long line of teachers continues.

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams
