About me:

retired hvac industrial designer. I have been shooting since I picked up photography while serving in the Army in 1958.
I am now shooting photo's for magazines. I currently own (2) Panasonic G3 bodies and have the 14 mm, 20mm, 25 mm, 45 mm, 14-45mm and 45-200 mm lens. I am shooting stock photo's and have been selling to a magazine here in NC called Our State magazine. I do this part time and have made anything from $100 to $1,000 per issue. Not enough to make a living, but then I am retired. I am currently working to expand my market and move into other publications.

published in: The Christian Science Monitor, Our State magazine, BlueRidge Country magazine.
