I grew up in southeastern Illinois and became a physician with a life long interest in photography. Since retirement, the hobby of photography and its study has filled much of my time. I'm now an officer in the Naples Camera Club and have been a PSA member for a few years but not active until now. I attended my first PSA convention this fall. I enjoy landscape and wildlife subjects and so far don't do many "people" pictures. I hope to upgrade my photo abilities by being in this group.
