Welcome to Galerie Photographic!

Most of what is here is for family and friends to enjoy.

For those of you who don’t know me, my interest in photograph started when I was 12 years old. Ever since then I’ve enjoyed both the artistic and technical challenges of photography. For a while in the 70s and 80s I did a stint as a semi-professional photographer, but now I focus purely the enjoyment side of photography archiving trips, events, and our children and grandchildren.

Over the years I’ve enjoyed just about every type of camera out there from view cameras, 4x5 speed graphics, 2 ¼ x 2 ¼ Hasselblad’s, Canon 35mm SLRs, Leica range finders, and now of course digital imaging.

Digital imaging is a wonderful step forward especially in post-production. Now countless hours in the darkroom are replaced with countless hours in front of a computer!

Enjoy!
