I have been photographing since high school (too many moons ago...). I got interested in HDR a few years ago and really like it. It is so flexible. And I like Topaz, ON1, and my favorite, Photomatix (which is made for HDR). I also enjoy macro and monochrome. I belong to the Wisconsin PSA Chapter and also a local camera club here in the Milwaukee area.

I took up photography as a hobby in 2011 after retiring from work. I am currently a member of two clubs, West Cumbria Photo Group and Copeland Photographic Society, in the North West of England.

I have been entering Exhibitions since May 2014 and joined PSA in September 2016, gaining my PPSA in February 2017. I like taking images of most subjects, although I particularly like to take pictures of people I meet on the street. I like to manipulate my images in Photoshop and convert many to mono in Nik Silver Efex.

I work as an architect and live in Port Washington, WI. I got back into photography a short time ago thanks to a friend at the office who shot sports cars, one of my first loves. And, with the Road America track just 30 miles away, I got hooked again. This time, however, another guy at the office raced bicycles (road, mountain and cyclocross) so I had another subject between car races. Shooting the cyclists and biking myself,I found I liked showing the expressions of amateur athletes who play and work at their sport for the love of the sport and competition. I have now also branched out to rugby and some track. I shoot Nikon so my son and I can trade equipment.

When I retired from being a school district administrator, I told a good friend that I wanted to take up photography when I retired. As a retirement gift, she gave me my first year's membership in the St. Louis Camera Club. That is when my new passion began. I found the people talented, friendly and so willing to share their knowledge with a beginner like me. I was both inspired and hooked. I had taken art classes my freshman year in college with thoughts of a career in art. However, I turned to education and had a very rewarding career. With photography, I found that I could develop my artistic side while also learning new technical skills. I love that photography keeps me learning and that my initial captures can turn into art in any number of different ways. There is always something new to learn. I enjoy our weekly meetings and competitions in the St. Louis Camera Club and have served on the Board of Directors, Print Committee and am now the Vice President.

At the same time I joined the St. Louis Camera Club, I also joined PSA. I have taken advantage of the many opportunities to grow in the art of photography. I completed two of John Fishback's online courses. I also participate in two PID Digital Study Groups:Fine Art and General, where I am the secretary; as well as three PID Digital Dialogue Groups: General, Monochrome and Macro. I love the feedback I receive and often submit my images to these groups prior to placing them in competition. I routinely participate in the PSA Interclub competitions through my camera club, as well as Print of the Month. For the first time, I won Print of the Month for October, 2016 with Ruby, an orangutan at the St. Louis Zoo. I have won Print of the Month 3 more times since then. I love to compete and frequently enter the International Competitions in PID Color and Monochrome. I am working on achieving my 5th star in Color and my 3rd star in Monochrome. I was fortunate enough to have won a Gold Medal for Jake in 2015. I have judged twice in PSA Councils Challenge and twice in Individual Creative Competition.

A Kodak Baby Brownie Special with 127 film was my first camera. It did not take long to get passionate about photography. My parents supported building a simple wet darkroom in the the basement. It was truly magic developing the film and making prints. Experience includes intern photographer at the Pueblo, Colorado Chieftain and Star Journal Newspaper. Camera of that period was a 4x5 Speed Graphic. I joined the U. S. Navy and graduated from the Naval Photography School in Pensacola, Florida. I am a private pilot now retired from 35+ years independent aircraft accident adjusting and investigation as a business owner. My career always strongly involved photography.
