Harry M. Stuart

I started in photography when I was about 12, then with my Kodak Brownie reflex camera and 127 film. That was back in Australia, the country of my birth. In 1967, when I was 25, I immigrated to Canada to join the early business computing industry. I met and married my wife Elaine in 1971 and, after a 1 year return to Oz, we started our family back in Toronto. My career moved us to Philadelphia in 1980 where we remained until 2006 and that brings us to now and Boynton Beach, Florida. I retired in 2010 from my role as a management consultant and am now focused on my two passions photography and genealogy.

In photography (and videography), I concentrate on nature and wildlife and, although we have traveled for many years and accumulated many thousands of images, I have just recently started competing in our local community camera club as well as the Boynton Beach Camera Club and the Florida Camera Club Council.

My equipment consists of a Canon 70D and several lenses, my favorite being my 100-400mm lens which allows me to shoot wildlife comfortably from a distance. I use Corel Paintshop Pro for my photo editing utilizing a custom-built dual screen computer, a gift to myself on retirement. The last two years have been very instructional for my photographic pursuits and I wish I had started this education sooner so that the aggregate quality of my images would be higher.
