“My involvement with photography started when I was in high school. It continued with my military service where I was fortunate enough to become a Photographers Mate in the Navy. I had the opportunity to work in a variety of formats in both black and white and color. My first love though has always been the expressive images obtainable with black and white film. I also like the fact that black and white negatives retain their sharpness for such a great length of time that I will be able to pass on my negatives to my children and grandchildren.”
