About Me

Originally from New York city, I got my itch for photography from my father, who used me as a child model, on many occasions.  Being the youngest of three children, who were no longer interested in posing for pictures, the job fell solely on me.  My father kept his prints in dozens and dozens of shoe boxes, and I can remember spending hours upon hours going over each one.  They were mostly black and white, but there were a few color photos also.  I can remember seeing my mom as a very young woman, and my dad as a very young man.  I remember seeing family friends that would visit during the holidays, in those photos looking so much younger than they were then.

I think that’s when my love for photography started.  Not that I pursued it as a career or anything like that.  But having a camera, and taking pictures was for me, much like how cell phones are to people today.  It almost seemed like a necessity for me.

In spite of my love for photography, its only recently that I’ve seriously considered progressing beyond amateur knowledge and skill of a snapshot taker, and becoming what anyone would call a true photographer.

That’s the motivation behind this project.  To progress and get better, and at the same time, bring a few people along for the ride.

    Great to see your project. It’s personal, but it’s a challenge we all should take in a photographer life! Keep up

      Thanks! It’s actually become even more personal after rediscovering my fathers old Minolta Autocord. It’s the camera I remember him taking all those pictures with. I just finished taking my first roll of 120 film with that camera. Feels like coming full circle…
