My first camera was a Minolta Freedom 100 – it was a tiny, instamatic everything-type of camera. Much to the occasional annoyance of my childhood friends, I was often found, with camera in hand, "documenting" our world. Finding I truly enjoyed photography, I eventually bought a Canon Rebel in the early 90s. While living in Delaware, I was fortunate enough to meet an editor of a local community newspaper who took a chance on me and gave me my first job as a professional photographer.
Back in New York and resisting the change to digital, an old friend loaned me his Nikon D70 sometime in 2012.
Since then I have been photographing the people and places throughout Wyoming County, NY.
