I have been creating photographs for over 35 years, occasionally interrupted by a career in Information Technology as a result of an accidental degree in Computer Science. My first camera was an Instamatic that I bought with my allowance savings when I was about 10 years old. At that time my Dad was working as an illustrator for Woodward’s department store (back when all the ads were real drawings!) and I had made the big bus trip downtown to meet him at work. On our way out I convinced him that this camera was absolutely the right thing for me, despite his warnings of the processing costs. We were both right.
