My passion for photography stems back to my childhood years…seeing myself taking pictures with a black box Brownie camera which, you could say began my interest in picture-taking.
Family vacations and traveling almost always found me on the lookout for interesting and different photos. I can always remember me having some sort of camera but my husband was in charge of taking pictures with our 35mm camera, lenses and all. On many occasions, I would ask him to take this shot, take that shot, so due to the fact that this happened so very often, as a gift, he gave me my VERY own camera and so my picture-taking began to flourish even more. My interest in photography is so intense that I am currently a member of the Manhasset/Great Neck Camera Club and North Shore Towers Camera Club. I have recently began entering my photos in competition in the Manhasset/Great Neck Club. I also attend free seminars at PFLI (Photographic Federation of Long Island) presented at the Old Bethpage/Plainview Library. Several of my pictures have been accepted and printed in the North Shore Towers 2014 yearly calendar. Three of my pictures have been selected and are currently being used for religious holiday card fund-raising at my church. My desire is to continue to take photos and improve my photographic skills.
As a photographer, I feel that ‘I see things that others do not see.’”
