As I approached retirement from a career in financial services, worked with a life coach who resurfaced my interest in photography. Mentored four and a half years with a master photographer and printer using only analog equipment and darkroom processing, teaching the technical aspects of photography. My other mentor. Richard Garrod, introduced me to the Zen of photography.
Every aspect of photography, from capture through printing, is a joy and continual learning experience, an internal voice reminding me "I love doing this."
