I have lived in the state of NY my entire life, the first thirty years in Harlem and currently in Rockland County. I am retired and living the good life visiting with family and friends and exploring new activities and places that I did not have time for when I was younger.

My love for photography happened in the era of Kodak brownie cameras and flash cubes and film SLR’s. My interest in Photography waned for a few years.

Then it happened, I had a casual conversation with a someone and I was complaining about the lack of small camera store that would answer questions about photography. They recommend that I try Bergen County camera in Westwood, NJ. That first visit changed a lot. Though not a beginner some of my skills were rusty. I took a couple of their courses in photography and I was revitalized. They also offer Trips, Free focus sessions and have a wonderful staff.

The last three years have given me such joy. I get to explore new places and share with others.
