I am currently retired. I am married and we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. I spent 25 years working as a Quality Assurance Analyst for 2 different major companies. My professional photography experience was primarily as a studio portrait photographer and I worked for a few national photography studios including a national school photography organization. I eventually opened my own home studio and worked on location. I also did some marketing photography capturing product images for company websites including a local art gallery. I very seldom shoot for pay anymore only when asked and my primary photography interest are wildlife and scenic.
