“We don't take pictures with our cameras, we take them with our hearts and we take them with our minds, and the camera is nothing more than a tool.” ~ Arnold Newman
▇ Welcome to my Flickr photo gallery.
I've been a photographer since I was 8 years old - starting out with my grandmother's Kodak Brownie Junior shooting 620 B&W, then evolving to my first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic when I was 14.
Right around then, I sold my first shot to a local newspaper. I was hooked - and a camera hasn't been too far from my side since then.
For most of the last three decades, I've worked in a variety of photographic fields: Advertising, editorial, catalog, news, stock, all of which I still do - however, family and other business and volunteer interests have me doing less and less these days.
Although I use a full-frame DSLR system for landscapes and studio, I always carry one of a variety of compact cameras I own - like my Olympus E-PL2 - everywhere I go. So mostly, my Flickr site is personal material from those cameras. However, on my web and 500px sites, I have more images relating to work.
Thanks for visiting!
