BIOGRAPHY

The Brownie Reflex and the old B&Ws that I shot with it date my interests in photography. The hobby began on occasional family trips and vacations. Although advancements in equipment caused me to move along with evolving technology, I was slow to move from film and now have boxes of old tech images to revisit … someday. The digital age finally got to me a few years ago and I am overwhelmed with the possibilities it offers. With semi-retirement , from teaching science in middle and high schools (I still volunteer and work as a substitute), came the opportunity to devote more time, and money, to my interests in nature photography. So I am a teacher, photographer, private pilot, SCUBA diver, Real Estate Agent and a few other things that most don't want to know about but I seem to spend most of my time poking around the planet with a camera these days. The many wonderful images presented on this and other sites by others motivate me to improve my work. While many of my colleagues aspire toward classic bird-book shots with gooey backgrounds, I don't get very excited by what I call BOASS (bird-on-a-stick-shot) photos, and try for images of action. I tend to shoot a lot of birds only because they are a bit easier to find than wild lions, tigers and bears.. I very much enjoy the comments and occasional repartee on this forum and have learned much from it. The commercial requests for images and the contacts from long lost friends who have run into my work on this forum are rewarding and validate the hard work of the moderators. Humor is the liquor of life. If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right! NOTE; If you happen to be a friend, a student from earlier years or would just like to chat, I would love to hear from you. Please email me at shinnshots@gmail.com or at the above site. INQUIRIES Please also direct your interest about the use or purchase of these images to the same address. Thank you, Steve.
