I have been passionate about photography since my teenage years. I started with a 21/4 Rolleicord, a 35mm Bolsey B and eventually moved up to Leica and Nikon film cameras. I processed my own film and enlarged the predominantly black and white analogue images in my home darkroom. When digital imaging became mainstream about 20 years ago, I became an enthusiastic convert and migrated from the wet darkroom to the digital darkroom and never looked back.I enjoy almost all aspects of photography from travel, landscape and architecture and have photographed my family extensively. I also enjoy post-processing and printing my images. While I shoot both monochrome and color, I find my aesthetic of based on simplicity and form better expressed in black and white.

I’ve been a customer of Bergen County Camera since Bob and Tom have been at the helm. It has been my virtual photographic home away from home and I enjoy coming to the store to share my images and get the lowdown on recent equipment releases. They along with their outstanding staff have provided a professional, responsive and welcoming environment for me to express and nurture my passion. If I have a photographic question or equipment need, they are always ready and willing to help.

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.
