In 2006 I purchased my first 6 Mega Pixel Digital pocket size camera to go to my nephew's wedding in Maui. My sister encouraged me in my photography and was my inspiration and mentor.

To become more knowledgeable, I completed a certificate in Applied Photography from Mohawk College. I have taken the PSA, NFRCC, OCCC and CAPA Judging courses and attained the CAPA Judges Certification. It has increased my knowledge in that area. For the past 5 years I have judged for both CAPA and PSA as well as some individual clubs. I enjoy doing this as I learn as well.

I have been a member of the Hamilton Camera Club for the past 11 years and was the secretary for the last 4 years. The Camera Club has been a good source of learning and I consider myself an amateur photographer who enjoys this in retirement. I feel that continuing to learn is the key to success in any endeavour including photography.

I enjoy capturing those special moments with my camera. I shoot with Lumix 4/3 cameras (GX85 and G9) and sometimes with my iPhone 11 Pro as that is the camera I always have with me.

Randy learned photography like many have, as a kid from his dad. A great gift he received for which he is grateful, and because of it he closer to his dad. Randy sees photography as a universal language that creates connection and relationships, and emotional responses that touches hearts. He is drawn to sharing photographs as he sees photography as a way to share the way he sees the world, and in also experiencing the photographs of others, he also he gets share a glimpse of their world too.

As a kid he dabbled and was intrigued with what can be captured in a picture - moments, art, and memories. In college he had access to a dark room and printed black and white pictures, and loved how the images magically appeared from just a white piece of paper. As he wanted to share photographs with others, he started a fraternity yearbook in his Junior year, and had it published for his frat brothers. Later it was marriage and kids, five of them. Well after the first few years, he found himself immersed in his career. But then he also came to the realization that there is more to life than work, so he decided to develop his photography skills. In 2014 he bought his first digital camera. The next logical step for him was to learn from others. So he signed up for a Shaw Nature Reserve course, and met Stewart Halperin and Jeff Hirsch, developed his relationships with them, learning much from their photography trips and tips, going to Venice and then Cuba. Most surprisingly to him, he loved learning the culture of other countries, and meeting the people he encountered.

Intrigued and excited with expansive possibilities, he also joined the St. Louis Camera Club, furthering his learning and sharing. It was from submitting photographs to competition with the intent to improve his pictures and learn what makes a good picture, he also got to see the world through the eyes of others. To further his skills, he started taking Kathy O’Donnell’s photo and photoshop classes. Randy won Camera Club Rookie of the Year for 2018.

Randy finds photography to be a experiential expression of his life, bringing to surface his insecurities and his gifts. He looks for a unique and different way to see the world (a different angle, a different view), looking for the unusual and the beauty of this world in its simplicity, in addition to its obvious magnificence. Randy practices law, owning his own law firm, spending many hours in his work, balancing the best he can his practice of law, and practice of photography. Growing up he never had a deeply seated dream, but photography changed all that. Now his dream is to share his pictures by creating a photo gallery where he practices law, rather than just having a "law office." And this he is doing. Always in awe in seeing and sharing the world through his photography eyes and from the photography eyes of others, he hopes and dreams to deepen that heartfelt emotional response and connection with others, delving deeper into that limitless expressiveness. For this he is grateful.

I retired in December of 2022 and I have picked a photography hobby that I had in middle school and high school. I'm not sure how I got away from photography, but I am enjoying my return. The digital cameras offer a lot more functionality than back in the day, and I have spent a good deal of time learning the camera, and how to apply these functions.

I have joined PSA in order to get more feedback on my images. I am also a member of the North Metro Photo Club in Fridley Minnesota.

My main interests are architecture, cityscapes, and still lifes. I also tend to use monochrome on a regular basis.

I am a retired systems engineer who has been shooting photography since I was a teenager. About 10 years ago, I got my first DSLR and started to take a much more serious effort in my photography. So, although my experience is over 60 years, it's only been since I got into digital photograpy that my interest greatly increased. I shoot all different genres of photography, but I mostly shoot landscapes, wildlife, airshows, and especially love shooting native American pow-wows. In the last three years, I have especially become interested in post-processing/editing techniques. I enter local and state level photo contests and have received some awards. I look forward to learning and getting inspiration from you all!
