After more than 4 decades since I developed and printed my first roll of Tri-X using a cocktail of D76, Dektol, Stop Bath and Fixer, photography runs through my veins. Actually, little has fundamentally changed - the silver halide platelets are just digital now :-)
I majored in photography, film, broadcasting, and journalism in college in the 70's, worked as staff for ABC-TV out of college - one of the original big three US-based TV networks, then took a job as a corporate staff photographer for Big Blue until they shut down the in-house operation, after which I became a software engineer and have been for three+ decades since. I still design, develop, and support massive-scale enterprise software and systems. I still do photography on the side as an avocation, have had my own brick and mortar gallery, and get hired out on occasion for specialty commercial gigs just to stay active and relevant until I retire from the better paying job and can afford to return to my first love full time.
