I have always had an interest in photography. When I was young, I worked all summer in a meat department to earn enough money for my first 35mm camera. It was not the best camera in the world, I bought it used, but it was mine. I didn't shoot many photographs with the camera before it stopped working. While I was attending USC in LA, I bought my first new 35mm camera, a Pentax. I started shooting a lot of photographs then. In 1973 and 1974, I won ribbons at the Monterey County Fair for my photography (mostly flowers and landscapes). My success at the fair soon led to a job with a couple of professional studios in Salinas, CA. I did wedding photography over a nine year period. Anyone remember Dolly and Bob's Studio? and/or Les Ng Photography? I did a lot of work for those two studios. During that time, I purchased a professional camera, a rolleiflex. I did many family portraits and senior photos. My focus (no pun intended) changed when I started a management career with Safeway Stores and ultimately a district manager with Waste Management. During my career with Safeway and Waste Management, I only did a small amount of professional photography. Mostly with Ron's Photography and Video. I worked with Ron's for about four years. I have recently retired from my regular job so now I can spend more time with photography projects. Over the last 6 years, I have taken photographs at the Consumer Electronic Show and Adult Expo in Las Vegas, flower photography, senior portraits, model photography, panoramic photography, green screen, and much more.
I have upgraded my photo equipment to include both Nikon and Canon equipment. (D300/5DMII)
So if you would like to chat about photography or get together to do some photography work, let me know. I am a low key, low pressure photographer. If it's fun and interesting, let's do it.
I am open to interesting TFCD assignments.
