I live in the Richmond, Virginia area since July 2017. Previously, I retired in 2010 from hospital administration and have never looked back. I am focused on my journey through retirement and my passion for photography and travel. I have a photography website and travel/retirement blog where I share my experiences, travels, and vision of the world and a little bit about photography from time to time. These new experiences come on the tail end of education in business and engineering, a US Navy career, followed by many years in construction & facility management both in commercial real estate and healthcare. I am a member of local camera clubs and Organization, the Photographic Society of America, Nikonians.org, and Coalition of Photographic Arts. I use a Nikon D500, D750, D800, D90 IR 590nm as well as a Fuji X100, X-E1, X-T1 and X-Pro2. I have learned many things about this great art and craft through membership at PSA and the other organizations as well as innumerable photography courses and workshops. My interests include landscape, seascape, architecture, floral, macro, and wildlife images with now a budding interest in street, infrared and black & white photography. My blog includes information about the challenges of retirement, my travels, or even a short story enhanced with images related to my experiences. I exhibit from time to time large prints and occasionally make a sale, but always it is about learning and having fun captures images. Some of those images and a blog can be found at http://www.jdroachphotography.com.
