Hockomock Digital Photographers Founder
President, 2007 -2010

(from May 2010)

I have been a resident of West Bridgewater for the past thirty years. After thirty-plus years in the Boston Public Schools, I joined the ranks of “happily retired” in 2003. Some of my “busy” week is spent planning my next photo-travel experience, getting a workout at the gym, volunteering at My Brothers’ Keeper, a local Christian charity, and photography.

I consider myself a serious amateur still trying to define who I can be photographically. Since 1995 I have invested some of my time and talents in local camera clubs – being a member in good standing at Hockomock Digital Photographers, the Stony Brook Camera Club in Wrentham, and the Photographic Society of America. I had naively dubbed 2005 as “My Year of Being Electronically Challenged,” as that was when I made the leap to digital photography. However, as you may have guessed, this challenge has not only been magnified but has also been extended to incorporate the subsequent years as well.

For the past two years I have had one-man exhibits in my hometown library. My inaugural display was a collection of landscapes taken while traveling throughout North America. The most recent showing was a unique look at the colors found in the landscapes of Yellowstone National Park, “Yellowstone’s Palette.”

There is an anonymous quote, “Life should not be measured by the breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breaths away.” It is my hope that I have captured a few breathtaking moments with some of my images...
