"PHOTOGRAPHER" = passionate; perseverant; creative; insatiable drive for perfection; hard worker; gets up very early; God-given "eye for the shot;" continuing education; loves geeky software; obsessed with detail; never stops trying to make an image better; fearless; fails often, but learns from failure; resilient; explorer; inquisitive; loves "Blue Hour;" desperately needs an understanding spouse; loves camera gear (and then more camera gear).
I'm a loving husband of 44 years, proud father and grandfather, mayor, lawyer, divemaster, and underwater photography instructor - but photography is my passion.
Whether with my Mavic Pro Platinum, Nikon Z8, or Nikon Z6II with Aquatica housing and INON strobes, I'll be there for the next adventure.

The art of photography is making extraordinary out of the ordinary
Your Spark page is OUTSTANDING!!!! There are shots I totally wish I had taken. I loved your shots of the Latin Quarter at night. I also really liked your shot from the King Alexandre Bridge with the statue in front, with the long exposure. That is really something special. You absolutely crushed it, and you have to be thrilled with your shots. I love how well you did throughout.
