Mike enjoys sharing his knowledge and talents in photography with others. He has also exhibited with the Photo Image League group.
In 1966 my dad took a couple of photos of my new bride. I was taken by them, loved them. Out of the service in 1970, I received his camera and darkroom equipment and figured I would teach myself how to use this stuff. I read a lot of articles and looked at a lot of photographs to make sense of it all. I took some photos along the way and finally got tired of going to classes where the instructors were just showing off their fancy equipment and decided to teach classes myself.
Foggy mornings and inclement weather is a time not too many people go out to photograph. This has suited my needs and did wonders to the backgrounds and I enjoyed the quiet. I just photograph whatever appeals to me, as you can see in my images. What have I learned up to now? Maybe I should have applied myself more.
