Welcome to My World


This is my venture into the world of photography. Those that know me best would suggest that I am a walking contradiction because I hate to be photographed. Yet, here I am…creating a blog about photography.

I’ve come to see the art in photography, thanks to two great professors, Jeremiah Patterson (University of Hartford) and Rick Newton (UMass – Amherst), who taught me a lot about photography. I’ve been practicing this art since February 2011, and every minute I enjoy it more. A good photograph isn’t about handsome people with perfect symmetry. Rather, it’s about capturing a moment in time. And thanks to the wonderful World Wide Web, it’s about sharing your experiences with the rest of the world.

With that said, welcome to my photo blog. I set up this blog in order to document my progress as an amateur photographer. Hope you enjoy looking at my photography! Feel free to leave comments – it’ll help me improve my talents!

If you have any suggestions, leave a comment or contact me via the form in my About Me page.

Come join me on this adventure…where no two days will be alike.

What kind of camera are you using, Jerry?

Hey Brian! Thanks for looking, man. I’m using a Sony A230. Figured I’d start off with something simple rather than starting off with the big boys.

Looks like you’re off to a good start. Keep working hard at your photography. If you want any advice or constructive criticism, let me know. I was a photojournalist for 20 years and had one of the best photo staff’s in the midwest in the early 2000s. Not that it means much.
Check my blog if you’d like, I just started taking pictures again after leaving the business to teach in 2005.Keep shooting, and shoot A LOT!
