Simi Valley, CA - United States
I retired December 1999, after a long career in Accounting and Finance, to pursue my life long interest in the arts by getting more involved with photography. Although I have not attended any course of study in photography, I have taken classes in painting and the arts during my college years. I also participate in photography trade shows, workshops, seminars, webinars, and I have read numerous "how to books" by professional photographers. I submit my stock images to five stock hosting Web sites under the user name 'photoaged'.
Special recognition is given to my wife, Carolyn, for her love of the outdoors and her excitement with hiking, which allows me to pursue my photography interests. She is quick to point out "shots of interest" for me to capture, and she is willing to critique my finished image.
