"It's The Real Thing"
Biography: I was alway interested in photography, when I was in my 20's I took a photography course at the New School, in New York City. That was back in the day of film. I knew I couldn't afford to have a dark room in my tiny apartment so I gave up classes.
4 decades later, while on a trip to Italy a friend of mine, started showing me some camera basics in digital photography. I came home and signed up for photography classes and never looked back. I am able to pursue my passion and follow my dream. I hope you enjoy my images.
