I have been all over the world but I always seem to come back to San Diego, California. I have lived here since 1962. I have lived other places of course but this is my home. I have been a photographic professional since 1984 when I got my first Exacta ( never heard of it have you? LOL)It was an antique then but I loved it and it forced me to learn photography from the ground up. I joined the military and was sent to the Philipines for three years where I becames a news photographer for a local paper (What a story that is!). When I came home I became a forensic photographer for a private detective agency and learning the craft at Southwestern college. They had one of only three forensics programs in the state. My next photo job came in 1990 when I was hired on contract to the San Diego Historical Society as a photo reproduction specialist under Larry & Jane Booth. I learned a college degree's worth of knowledge and skill from those two. Photographic engineering from Larry and conservation of antique photos from Jane. From then on I have studied and continued to learn about Photography and especially the processes and techniques of antique photos and how to preserve and conserve them. It also got me into genealogy. A whole other story!
