“Photography has been my long-time passion. From Polaroids to disposable cameras, I was always taking photos of family and neighbors. When I moved to Dallas, Texas I became friends with a photographer who owned a large studio there in the early 80’s. Overtime, I met others and felt it was time to buy cameras and get serious about my own photography. I bought my first Nikon from one such friend and mentor, and eventually took over his old studio. I learned how to do portraiture at Richland College, assisted other photographers, and gradually began to shoot events/festivals.
As a photographer for many years now, I still enjoy portraiture the most. I am now retired, but have worked with many arts organizations on media projects for children, worked in commercial photography and love travel photography.
After moving to Saugerties, New York, over a year ago, I have worked to support and become a part of the local arts community. I have been trying to get my head around being a full-time artist. For this year’s Saugerties Artists Studio Tour, I decided to show only my black and white film and digital images.”
