People

My preference is to photograph people outside the studio in their own environment.  However, the convenience of a backdrop helps especially in bad weather.  Uncle Roy (pictured above and at right) passed away in 2010 at age 95. He was an excellent model who posed for hundreds of my photos. He claimed it was thousands.

 He also posed for my students.

My uncle was witty and hilarious until the end of his life.
