I am a Master Automotive Technician and shop owner by trade, and retiring my wrenches in favor of following my true passion: Photography. Though I have been an avid shutterbug for over 3 decades, after getting serious about it the last couple of years, never realized it was my true passion in life. I never tire of watching people, their expressions and their moments.
Photo editing is my second passion, learning Photoshop over the last decade, to a point I now help edit images for magazines, other professional photographers and I am a volunteer on an organization called Operation Photo Rescue, where we volunteers help victims of natural disasters like those of Hurricane Katrina, by repairing damaged pictures from scans, then returning them to the organization, where they print and return the images to those that thought they had truly lost the things in life that are not replaceable.
Some of my photos can be found on my website, Passion for Pixels, with navigation buttons on the left to different galleries, including one to show some before and after examples of what I have repaired/fixed/edited for myself and others. In addition, assembling still images into slide shows is another way I enjoy enhancing the passion of photography and some of my creations can be found on Vimeo and on YouTube
Feel free to stop by any of these places and be inspired to pick up your cameras and see if that "click" does for you, what it does for me.
