Born in Philly in '54 only to be whisked away to Boston at the age of 10 days.
My Mom and her Parents and her Grandfather were all amateur photographers. My Step-Grandfather was a professional.
I got my first camera a Polaroid Swinger in 1968.
Bought a Minolta SRT 101 in 1969 and built a closet darkroom.
In 1976 I opted for Photography as an avocation.
Upon retirement from Education in 2004 I enrolled at Daytona State College. There, I earned an Associates in Photographic Technology.
I enjoy being an amateur but I've recently begun selling prints at Art Shows.
