I was born and grew up near Greensburg, Pa, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and attended graduate school at the University of Cincinnati. My wife, Susan, and I left the Pittsburgh area in 1971 to accept a new job. After raising a family and retiring, we moved back to the Pittsburgh area in 2013 and now live in Oakmont.
At the encouragement of my brother, I became interested in photography and purchased my first 35mm SLR camera and a darkroom in 1973. I enjoyed working in the darkroom and developed basic photography skills.
Subsequently, the growing demands of real life left little time for photography until our children left home to attend college, when I resumed my photography hobby. I converted to digital photography in 2005.
I enjoy a range of photo subjects and I have not specialized in any particular subject or type of photography. I print and mat my own photographs.
I am a member of the Photo Section of the Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh (AKA: The Pittsburgh Photography Club), where I recently served as president for three years. The many talented members of the club make the competitions very challenging and quite entertaining. New members are always welcome.
Thanks for your interest and I hope that you enjoy viewing my prints as much as I enjoyed making them.
