About Me


     After my degree in Architecture from Penn State in 1966, I served in Togo, Africa with the Peace Corps and then returned nine years later to work as a Senior Architect directly for the Nigerian Government in Lagos designing site plans for government staff housing.  I spent twenty-five years practicing as a registered architect in four states back in the U.S., then switching to professional photography in 1990 during the recession, for fifteen years.  I began with fine large 4x5 format architectural photography with a Sinar initially in combining both fields, but the architectural market was obviously weak and I gradually specialized in portraiture, my love since 1968.  I did brochures, product photography, and then primarily fine weddings, anniversaries, families, seniors, executive and child photography.  I am essentially retired now at age 74, but found that providing environmental portraiture in the verdant Pennsylvania Brandywine Valley of the Chadds Ford countryside and at Longwood Gardens ( http://www.longwoodgardens.org/ ) proved so beautiful and complemented the studio work of so many aspiring models.  It has always been my greatest pleasure to preserve these special moments for so many families...where portraits remain on their walls and mantels so many years later.

     Some additional portraiture, with my cute comments, is on my first MM site: http://www.modelmayhem.com/750  I DID do more than my collie Robbie, avatar. With a brand new film Mamiya 67 Pro II system with 100-200 and 180 lenses and two backs (one formerly belonging to Annie Leibovitz!), and all accessories, I am hoping to get up new fine portraits and home and landscape photos, as well as a new digital Canon.  I continue to devote some of my time to my International Center for the Arts 1994 project.  Fine 13pp brochures are available on request, 610-467-1410, Al   http://webberstudio.blogspot.com/2008/1 … -proposal.

     Please note:  Two years ago when my father passed away at nearly 105, we had to sell the family home.  I had twenty years worth of my negatives and proofs that had to be discarded in a dumpster as there was no place for them in our present small rented home twenty miles away.  I was able to give them to their owners in too few instances; especially the weddings and reunions.  Every photo shown here on each site is either a new copy photo of a 16x20 or 20x30 mounted print or a scan of a 4x6 (film) proof made with a Nikkormat, most with a 135mm lens from three duplicate proof albums I kept.  My fine Pentax 645 system came later in Chadds Ford.  My "selfie" is the only digital photo, made with the new Canon.  So I apologize for their quality, and hope to begin anew with a simple Canon EOS Rebel T3i digital (with a 300-page instruction manual) here in rural Oxford, Pennsylvania, USA.  I still have three Nikkormats with split-image focus (often on the iris of the nearest eye), centered (+-) needle for average exposure, a depth of field button, instant firing, and a finder with a real field of vision.  I just might keep them handy!
