My name is John.
My father taught me to process film in a makeshift darkroom when I was about ten years old. That priceless experence seems like it was only yesterday. If only I could have a few more nights with him in that darkroom! I still have several of his vintage cameras.
I have been married for 37 years and have a son, a daughter and one grandson. Both of my children are military pilots. My daughter now flys the LC-130 and supports the National Science Foundation on the South Pole and in Greenland. My son is currently deployed in the sandbox. Oh, how I wish the world could live in peace!
I retired from the US Navy where I made dents on the aircraft carrier, usually off center line and far from the 3 wire. I still get to dance with clouds and feel so lucky to witness many beautiful sunsets and sunrises from an airliner. There is nothing more magical and inspiring then to see a rainbow from the cockpit. If only those experiences would make me a more creative photographer.
I love to travel! New Zealand is one of my favorite countries.
When I grow up I want to be a fashion photographer. Seriously!
I have learned so much from the members of Digital Grin.

Nice to see a fellow former sailor on here. I didnt do the full 20 and retire. I chose to get out at my 10 year mark. What did you fly and what carriers were you on?

I flew the E2C Hawkeye. I had several long deployments on the USS America and several short ones on the Ike and the Nimitz. I was an RAG instructor for 3 years and got to land on all but the Midway.

I've noticed a lot of new folks joining our People forum so I thought it would be great if we had a place to introduce ourselves and share a bit of personal info. How about we share 7 things about ourselves. You don't have to share the same things, just 7 facts about yourself that you don't mind other people knowing.
My real name is Alex.
I've been married for 21 years and have a beautiful daughter.
I've been shooting seriously for about 7 years with a focus on People photography for about 4 of them.
I do portrait work professionally but my day job is an IT Project Manager Nerd. I hope to shoot full-time when I retire, hopefully at 52.
I live in Southern California.
I have a dog named Potato and another named Meatball.
I'm not shy and have been seen naked by thousands of strangers.
Hello, I have been on this site for a while but not super involved. Photography is a passion of mine but I have never been in a position to pursue it further. So, I suppressed my dream for a while. Here goes.....
