I've enjoyed photography seems like for ever. I was about 9 yrs old (1960) and had a chance to watch famous Civil Rights Photog Ernest Withers, develop a roll of b&w film and make prints. Using our bathroom as a makeshift photo lab. It was like magic to me. I knew then that's what I wanted to do. I couldn't afford a camera as a child but I kept the dream. I bought my 1st camera at 20 yrs. old when I was serving in the US Air Force as a Medic (1971). 2 yrs. later I was able to cross-train as a Photo Specialist(USAF). After an Honorable Discharge (1975) was hired as a News Videographer WHBQ-TV (ABC) Memphis. In 1984 hired as a Corporate Videographer/Editor at FedEx. Now retired after 27 yrs. with FedEx.
I Still love photography. The digital era is awesome. You have complete control of the image from start to finish and without bathing in photo chemicals.
At this point I don't have a studio, I shoot on location. I go where the action is.
