Since I’m starting this blog in my mid 40’s, I have a lot of catching up to do. I wish to keep giving you parts of my history while introducing you to things I am currently working on, and hence this post…something old, something new.
While I have predominantly worked with the female figure over the years, it is not all I do. I equally enjoy doing scenics and landscapes as well. Doing those was in fact my first practice rounds in photography (along with astrophotography)…remember those family vacations I previously spoke of? Photographing “professionally” while on vacation is something that I have always done, it’s a part of who I am, and my wife and family just understand that is something I have to do – to take advantage of the travel already in progress and not waste the ability to capture something I may never get a chance to see again. It’s just something I have to do.
The above image is a low quality film scan. For the time being, it’s the best image I have of this shot. This was before I acquired a film scanner, but somewhere in my archives, it is still waiting to be re-scanned. I was somewhere around the Orlando area for this image, and I want to say it was near Disney Village, in its early days. It was photographed with whatever point and shoot camera I had at the time. I just saw it, and knew I had to capture it.
In this photo, I was taking a Cruise with my family to Alaska. Alaska is the perfect place to vacation for a photographer such as myself. The views were absolutely breathtaking, and no camera could ever do it justice. Alaska is something you really need to just see for yourself. I had taken many shots on this trip, but we’ll get to more of those later.
Till next week…
