Digital and Film Photography
I began working in photography in 1952 while still in high school. I managed Pfiles Camera Shop and attended several photo courses while in Decatur. Later worked at the Decatur Herald & Review and Peoria Journal Star daily newspapers as a staff photographer. I was the manager of Media Services at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center for 27 years retiring in 2001. I have spent several years photographing various commercial jobs and many weddings.
About the art:
I have always been interested in photography as an art going from the black & white film processing and darkroom printing. I have since moved into the digital/computer photography.
I have been focused on photographing musicians as their perform their ART at the Contemporary Art Center, displaying these photographs at the C.A.C. I have also spent more time recently exploring other subjects to express an artistic finish.
