Having grown up in Rochester, New York, the home of Kodak, I was exposed to cameras throughout my life. During high school I had a love for photography, and at a very young age I began taking snapshots with my Kodak Instamatic camera. I took a photography course in high school, and over the years I took online courses and workshops. During my career as a high school English and Journalism teacher, I ran a community newspaper. During the journalism courses, I taught digital photography to my students in the early 1990s when digital cameras were emerging.
Since retiring from my career as an educator, I have continued to explore the world of photography by joining local, national and international photography organizations. My enthusiasm for photography has grown into a daily obsession. I bring my camera bag everywhere I go, and I am constantly looking for interesting subjects to photograph. My husband is a retired educator who is also an artist, so we frequently enjoy taking day trips where he paints, and I photograph. I find the majority of my subjects within nature, but since I have four grandchildren, I also enjoy using them as models for portrait photography.
I have established a Facebook group for emerging or experienced photographers who are interested in giving/receiving feedback about their images. If you are interested in joining this group, click the link below:
