As a kid, I remember loving National Geographic and Life magazines. Pin-up calendars and posters were everywhere;. Movies usually were so “glamorous”. (Still love the 40’s/50’s Hollywood glamour portraits).
I bought my first camera in 1973 to record my adventures in the Marines. I took pictures everywhere from Italy, France, England to the other side of the world in Japan. At that time, they were mostly my attempts at land/city scapes, to local events such as Friendship Day in Japan on MCAS Iwakuni.
In 1977 I started getting a bit more serious. I started taking a course with NYI (New York Institute of Photography), bought a darkroom setup, etc. The darkroom lasted until around mid-81, when I was deploying more than staying home. Packed it up, until it finally was sold at a yard sale some time in the mid 90’s. (Sigh)..
These days, I take photos of many different genres: Landscapes, urban, street, glam, pin-up, old barns, dilapidated houses, boudoir, glam/art nudes, etc.
I can't say that I have a "passion" for any one genre, so I try my best at a few. ;)
