As an amateur photographer for over 40 years, I thoroughly enjoy the art form.
I previously served eight years as Chair of the Reston Photographic Society (RPS), and a board member of The League of Reston Artists which includes the RPS.
I also continue serving The Nature Visions Photo Expo (naturevisions.org) as a previous board member and other capacities.
These positions have provided me with an excellent exposure in the area of judging.
I enjoy photography competitions and as a graduate of The Joe Miller Seminar on Judging, I endeavor to put the knowledge gained from that seminar together with my experience to be a competent judge.
I have judged over 20 competitions and hope the participants have benefited from and enjoyed the competitions as much as I have.
"The Official Photographer" (unpaid) has been my designation on a number of occasions for diverse groups of people and organizations. My wife Gerry, also a photographer, and I photograph various events and she as director and producer combines the photos along with music and effects to make a great Pro Show slide presentation that are cherished by the participants.
