But, for those who do care, here is something about me.
I am not new to life. I am not new to what I do. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I coached aquatics for 27 years. I have been in photography for about seven years. At least in a serious way. I think that the digital camera and the ability to do post processing on a computer changed photography from a chemist/professional activity to something that every man can do and really excel at. Yet, I strive to do it better than the ordinary person.
I love teaching. There is something magical when you get an individual to understand something that they previously didn’t comprehend. The same with coaching. Watching a team come together and work as a unit toward a common goal is a real high.
I am no longer coaching, but am currently officiating the sport of water polo. Again, there is a challenge to the calling of a game in the correct way so that the outcome is fair and proper without influencing the game yourself.
I like the outdoors and nature. I like seeing and noticing what others can’t see or won’t take the effort to see. It takes a special effort to see nature and the wildlife that is out there for the viewing. Most people won’t make that effort. I am currently working on making that effort.
I want to take my photography to the next level. I want to become semi-professional. I am capable of making good images and I know others want take advantage of my skills. I just have to get out there and make it happen.
That is the purpose of this site; to document that journey and to let the world know what I am learning and thinking when it comes to photography. Provided that anyone cares enough to read it.
I hope you enjoy it.
Comment freely on anything you want to, I look forward to hearing your opinion.
