I am a graduate of The New York Institute of Photography currently residing in western Oregon. I am close to retirement and I am using this website to attain recognition (and hopefully comments) for some of the work I have created. I hope to retire someday and enjoy fully this medium with the goal for financial rewards. The advent of digital photography is affording me a new avenue of expression. I have discovered two lovely young models. One is Heidi and the other is Crystal. I am featuring both girls on my site. When teaching photography at Chemeketa Community College, I use a web based tutorial found at www.shortcourses.com.
