Inaugural Day!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

How appropriate that this blog is being inaugurated on this momentous day, a day of great new beginnings!

Since it’s beginnings, the technology of photography has steadily evolved to make it more easily and simply accessible. From hand-coated papers exposed in the sun, to wet-coated glass plates, through easy-to-handle film, and now to the digital medium, it has progressed to be a creative tool available to anyone. It is truly the “Every-person’s” medium of artistic expression. It is my desire with this blog to develop (pun intended) a community to share ideas, thoughts and experiences, and to help each of us grow creatively and technically.

As a brief introduction, I have been a working as a professional photographer for about 25 years, have taught classes at community colleges and at the Smithsonian here in Washington, DC, and am continuing on a journey to help everyone I can touch to develop the creative passion within them. Please join me!
