As a photographer, I like to watch for little moments that tell a story or convey a feeling.
Most of my life, I have been a photographer incognito. Formally educated in the Liberal Arts, I began raising a family and eventually landed in the tech field where I have spent many, many years. I have the resume of an IT professional; in secret, I have been a photographer.
The photographs began with a second-hand Brownie camera, given to me by my mother. Something about seeing the world thru the view finder appealed to me at once. An event or scene is often shaped by what was eliminated from the frame. As I grew older, moments grew more fleeting. Photography provided an avenue hold time, freeze a moment and allow you to feel and remember the event.
Through the years, there have been many changes in cameras since that early Brownie. But what has not changed, the desire to create a moment. I have that sense still when I look through that view finder- the need to control what the viewer sees. But now, there is a sense of responsibility in what I share.
When I am not behind the camera or computer screen you will generally find me in boots and wide brim hat wandering places others do not.
