Worked all summer to buy my first camera at 14. Got into 35mm photography seriously at 16 yrs. old when I was introduced to B&W darkroom development and printing in high school. Now doing digital, 35mm, and just started medium format film. Medium format film photography has been a fantastic, refreshing discovery to my life long hobby which has impacted on my creativity as much as my introduction to B&W darkroom. Unfortunately, it took me over 25 years before I could afford to move into medium format seriously recently.
