I've been photographing since the mid 70's now and have culminated images of a diverse subject matter. My passion is in travel, weddings and portrait photography. The transition from film to digital has been interesting. Experience has taught me to make every shot count which is contrary to most photographers today.
Skill rather than "spray and pray" and pressing the button at the decisive moment is how I like to capture my images.
To be an excellent photographer takes more than just learning the techniques to make an image, you need to be passionate about your work and to feel an affinity to your clients. The image has little to do with the camera itself, but much to do with the skill and chemistry between the photographer and the clients.
