So this being my first blog if you don't know me I have been a photographer for a long long time. Mostly I have done it as a hobby for work or to help others. I am mostly self-taught, but I have had the opportunity to attend several workshops over the years. I have also taught workshops and college classes for around 30 years. So, I guess you could say I have had some experience in the field. I have to say I love "good photography" and I am constantly learning new techniques and visiting unique locations to improve my skills. My first experience with a real camera came with my first job out of school. I went to work for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in their photo area. I was hired to operate a process camera. It was nothing like a camera the average person had for a hobby.

We had an endless supply of every type of camera from 35mm to 4X5 format cameras available for our use and we were encouraged to shoot photos. I was handed a 35 mm camera and a couple of rolls of slide film and if I recall I had two pictures turn out, I was hooked.  Since then I have done a lot of different types of photos, but I would have to say I think I enjoy landscape photography the most. I hope you enjoy my photos and I hope to continue to post blogs about different subject so keep coming back and share the link to my website with your friends and family.
