I became interested in photography 60 years ago when I received a chemical set for a birthday present. My darkroom graduated from my bathroom to a permanent structure in my parent's garage.
Born in South Africa, I was able to combine my love of nature and wildlife with my love of photography. I have been a member of PSA since moving to Florida, USA, in 1990 and have enjoyed all aspects of photography. My first love is still wildlife and I enjoy photographing birds in flight.
About 5 years ago, I took some classes in fine art photography and gained a better understanding of fine art and black and white images. I belong to 2 camera clubs and a fine art group where I find I have learned the most from discussion with fellow photographers.
I have recently retired from practicing dentistry, and am enjoying more opportunities for travel and early morning nature photography.
