60. Started professionally when I was 25 after about 2 years of shooting. Strictly a commercial portrait photographer that shot Hasselblad for about 30 years. Dabbled in 4x5. After I started my business in 1976 I went about a year using a lab then realized that to do good work you have to print yourself, so I set up a color darkroom. Sold my business in 1986 and moved to LA.
In LA shot headshots and model portfolios. Did commercial location scouting and worked as a still photographer for movies. Stayed for 7 years.
Moved to Portland OR worked in a camera store for 1 year.
Moved to San Jose CA and worked in a camera store for 1 year. Started up my portrait business again only strictly black and white. Stayed for 7 years.
Moved to Santa Rosa CA. Continued in black and white portraiture. Converted to digital printing first, then digital capture in about 2007 after I couldn't tell the difference between one of my 20x24 digital print and an analog one, which took some time to accomplish.
Absolutely love digital and everything about it. Sold all my darkroom stuff and enlargers but kept my Nikon F4, 2 Hasselblads and Linhof 4x5.
Shoot with Canon 1DS Mark3 mostly and print on an Epson 7800. Both black and white and color.
