Bio:
Photography has been a part of my activities for most of my life. I spent 30+ years in the Beaverton School District as a teacher and audio/visual media specialist. Most of
those years I was a yearbook advisor and taught B&W darkroom to middle school students. I also taught PCC Adult Ed classes for about ten years. Family travels have provided many photographic opportunities from which I have created a series of travelogues which I present at local senior residences. As a photographer I consider myself more of a good mechanic than an artist. But I’m always learning the artistic side. I’ve worked in many different types of subject matter over the years. I especially enjoy people pictures, scenics, animal pictures, and experimental work with time exposures and motion sensing equipment.

Equipment:
My gear includes Canon 10D, T2i and T5i DSLR’s with kit lenses plus other macro and wide angle lenses. It also includes several point-and-shoot cameras, extension
tubes, tele-extenders, and various flash units (including a couple of old Honeywell Strobonar units for fast action work.) Several older tripods, a copy stand, and some DIY motion sensors add to the fun.

Post Processing:
Post processing is a continuing learning project with iPhoto and Aperture being my main software. I also dabble with Photoshop Elements.

Projects: 
Recently my main project has been “Backyard Visitors.” I use motion sensing equipment to shoot the raccoons, skunks, possums, humming birds, etc. that visit our yard during the day and at night. I’ve also done a bit of work capturing light wand time exposures with my grandson and some liquids in motion closeups with a special rig I built. Fireworks pictures and several photography crafts also stretch my creativity.
