Why a website? Aren't you retired?

I'm not retired from photography!

Photography has been a passion of mine since high school. For the last 40 years or so I've sold "one time rights" to use my pictures in brochures, books, on CD covers, and, lately on websites, but selling my photos was never my goal. I just love taking pictures and, if they get used, that's nice, too.

But for all these years, I never had any way for others to see the scope of my photography. My sales agent for the last ten years, Alex LaChapelle, has been bugging me for most of that time to develop a website that could showcase at least some of my photos.

Because I love taking pictures, but hate filing or organizing them, they haven't been in very good order. Finding specific pictures, or just finding the best ones, has been an incredible chore, one that I just didn't have the energy to do while I was still working fulltime-plus at the Chamber. (All of the images from before 2003 are on slides, and also need to be scanned to post them.) Now, finally, I've at least started the task of getting the 70,000 images in some sort of retrievable forms. I hope you enjoy this first pass through my photographic journey.

I've been a photographer and writer for a long, long time. There's a lot I wanted to write about and photograph, but my full-time career in association management got in the way. Now that I'm retired I have no excuses for not fulfilling this part of my life. I'll be writing about photography, especially for "serious seniors," travel, politics and my beloved city of San Luis Obispo. I hope you enjoy it.
