I've been involved in photography as a hobby since 1967 with film cameras. Taking photos in Germany while in the Army and subsequently in Vietnam.
<br />I've been using Nikon Cameras going back to the F2 and have a box of old film Nikons. I switched to digital about 11 years ago when my first grandchild was born. I currently use several different Nikon cameras and lenses including some of the old AI lenses which still work on the new digital cameras.
<br />My photo interests vary from nature, macro, landscape, and almost anything else that catches my interest. My favorite subjects are butterflies and macro. My cameras include a Nikon D-300, D-90, D-7000, D-750, P-7100,
P-610 and AW=100 (underwater camera). I use Lightroom 5, Photoscape X , Luminar AI and Microsoft Photo Editor.

I am a recently retired professor of psychology. I still write articles on topics like "social flow" and serve as a reviewer for several journals in a new area of behavioral science called Positive Psychology. I am married and have two middle-aged daughters. My wife and I travel a lot. We are also quite active in our local community doing service work and supporting political causes. I have been an amateur photographer since purchasing a Minolta SLR while in grad school in 1970. However, lately I have committed much more time to photography (e.g., I am the President of a regional camera club). Nature is my chapel. Photographing landscapes is yet another reason to hike and get outdoors. I’ve taken some decent images, but definitely need some guidance and mentoring.

As a child I enjoyed painting and architectural drawing. My hobby is also electronics. My personality is very much like my dear father, who always likes to carry the camera when going out on the street or while visiting the landscapes. After graduating from high school in 1976, I bought my first old camera, the Canon A1. I officially took part in professional classes for 1 year. I know how to develop black and white pictures very rudely because the tools are so simple and creative.

After graduating from college, I continued to take pictures, then studied for 3 years and joined the Photography Association of Washington Area. I worked with the members and served as a class leader for several years. I take part in teaching photography lessons and especially the Light Painting Photography subject. The device I am using is Sony A7RIII and Sony A9II. In addition, I study and teach Yoga, I love to take pictures of Yoga poses combined with Light Painting outdoors.

I reside in Iola, Wisconsin, and am an award-winning photojournalist in the sports and news fields and former owner of rural newspapers. In 2007 I started shooting landscape photography and then produced a documentary series of shots of the historic barns in the county in which I reside. That year I also started capturing unique images from classic vehicles since our town hosts one of the largest car shows in the country. I retired in 2018 and am president of the Mid Wisconsin Photography Group. Lately I have gotten back into b&w (what I shot most of in my newspaper days) and have ventured into woodland.

I’m retired at this point but just as active as when I was working as the director of Community Services for the City of Palo Alto in California. Presently I’m a commissioner on the San Jose Arts Commission, play lots of golf and snooker, and babysit two incredible grandkids. I’m also married to a very forgiving and lovely wife (for 42 years!). My photographic adventure began as a teen when my grandmother bought a Mamiya Sekor dslr and with its help I became my high school photographer. I’m currently a member of my local camera club and as such enter numerous competitions at the local and state level, especially with my macro work. I’m stretching myself with "scapes" and hope to learn from you all.
