My interest in photography started when I was in the Army as a teenager-young adult and had the opportunity, or was it a responsibility, to travel. When I ended up at my last duty station in Texas I was bored as a California born beach boy so I took some photo classes and darkroom classes. I did not progress to much in the "processing" end of the hobby but continued taking photo's as my two son's grew up playing high school and college sports. I have always been a film based photographer until the last year when I got into digital after a loss of all of my film equipment. I miss some of the film advantage but love too what digital instant response and editing offer. I want to be outside, I love the magical times of the mornings and the evening, and nothing better then seeing the day start or end with my camera in my hand.
