I have been in the photography business since 1987 when I started photographing weddings for another photographer. In 1988 I attended my first formal photography class at the Mid America Institute of Professional Photographers (MAIPP) taught by Leonard Levy from the Boston area. Learning photography from a professional excited me and I went back to MAIPP for the next seven years. My experience spans over a number of different types of photography from pre-school to executives, including sports (all kinds), landscapes, and events. I won't mention the type of digital camera(s) I use or the computer since the vision comes from the head, heart and hands. I do post production work on almost all images, using NIK, PhotoShop CS5 and Elements10 along with Lightroom3. I retired from teaching at Northern Michigan University 15 years ago after teaching for 31 years as a business professor. Prior to the university term, I was high school business teacher for 5 years. Presently I am teaching a digital photography class for the Northern Center for Lifelong Learning in Marquette, Michigan.
