Since 2001 when I retired from the Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, I have been a volunteer with several non-profit agencies, traveled and lived abroad, enjoyed my children and their families, and, most of all, spent more time with my wife of over 55 years. During my travels, I loved visiting art museums. I wanted to produce art that would communicate ideas and feelings, and would excite others.
I chose photography. Since early childhood, I loved to look at photographs in large family photo albums. There would be photos of family and places – each with its own story to tell. In junior high school I started taking my own photos with a Brownie camera. With the help of my father, I set up a small darkroom in the basement of our house and would develop film and make contact prints from negatives of my photos.
Since that time I have continued to take photos using a variety of film and digital cameras. In November of 2015, I purchased a new higher end digital camera and began to learn all that I could about its use and the principles that go into making a photograph.
Soon after my purchase I enrolled at Washtenaw Community College, https://wccnet.edu, to take classes in photography. WCC is known for having a superior program in photography with an outstanding faculty and facility.
I have continued to take classes there through the present and appreciate the outstanding instruction I have received.
This website displays some of my work.
The photographs displayed are taken with both film, large and medium format, and digital cameras.
