I started with these two cameras: a Kodak Instamatic and then a Polaroid Swinger. By the end of my teens, I was shooting, processing and printing 35mm. I majored in Cinema & Photography in college but regretfully lacked the confidence of making a decent living with it.
The next four decades were spent in the business of mass media: from The Boston Globe to NBC. Then, with retirement, came opportunity to shoot, learn and explore with no restrictions and expectations except for those I put on myself.
And as for the idea of not making a living doing this? Here's a lesson I've learned... you may not get rich by becoming a photographer but the activity and the art of photography can be deeply enriching.
