As a child, I was unconsciously taking pictures of nature and recalling them for childhood inspiration.

As an adult, I graduated from college with a great liberal arts education, but no practical qualifications. I relied on my one college photography course to land my first job as a medical photographer at a large Boston hospital. Benefits included tuition for area photography courses as well as the use of hospital equipment and processing. In particular, I enjoyed a zone system course that demonstrated the possible subtleties varying light can provide.

From then on, I picked up photography courses from time to time; but my career path led me to an MBA, and non-profit management work. Through those years, I always kept shooting and showing my work at the Friends Meeting in Cambridge as well as at one Sudbury Valley Nature Photography show. Now retired, I love spending more time playing with my inner-child photographer.
