My interest in photography began in my father's closet-sized darkroom  basement.  I would spend hours there entranced by theiimages that would appear magically.  When we traveled, I would carry the extra lenses for his Nikon F which was used for slide film and his Yashica twin lend which was reserved for black and white film.  We would discuss photos, lighting, composition, and the difference between Kodachrome I and Kodachrome II.

I have, however, fully made the transition from film to digital

My only formal training was in two college courses with David Batchelder at Amherst College, Mass. . I also spent some time studying with Dan McCormack at the Woodstock Center for Photography. Both of these men provided great instruction and encouragement.

My day job is a family physician in Kingston and Saugerties, New York. I have also been a Mohonk physician for over thiry years. My photography habit would not be possible without the support and tolerance of my wife, Ruth. She also does my matting and framing
