My interest in photography started when I was about 10 years old and received my first camera. From there, I progressed to an “instamatic” and then purchased a 35mm Range Finder in 1970. My younger brother “appropriated” that one, as he was also bitten by the bug. I found out about SLR’s and purchased a Minolta SRT101 and then started adding to my camera bag with many different lenses; from 90mm Macro to 100-500 Zoom, shooting mostly on slide film.

I joined the Brockton Color Slide Club at the urging of Jack Alexander, with whom I worked. That club went through many changes, including its name, as it became the Greater Brockton Camera Club. I served as its Treasurer for many years. I enjoyed competing in the various categories at the
club, earning many ribbons in Nature, Photo-Journalism, Photo-Travel, Portraiture, and Open categories. On several occasions I was honored with “Slide of the Year.”

During this time at GBCC, I was asked to join CAMNATS, a nature photography organization, which is by invitation only. My portfolio was reviewed and accepted. My first digital camera was a point and shoot Fuji, but I have now progressed to a Nikon D3000. I still find the technology of the digital camera totally amazing and the instant feedback blows my mind.

My interests include flowers, action, travel and nature.

Here is a sampling of some of my images…
