Photography has always been a major part of my life; a passion handed down from my father who was a professional photographer in the late 1920's, 30's, and through WWII. He told me (early and often) that "a photograph is made in the darkroom." More importantly, he instilled his strongly held belief that if a photographer has no emotional connection to what he/she is photographing, the best one can do is produce a pretty snapshot. With that in mind, I left behind a 30+ year career in litigation consulting, picked up a camera and started learning my way around digital darkrooms. I haven't put my camera down since and I thrive on road trips ~ both long and short ~ seeking the scenes and subjects I connect with.
