Edward discovered photography as a seventh grader and worked during the summer to save the few dollars necessary to purchase a Kodak Brownie camera and film. He continued photography into his adult life and until the demands of a career and family replaced the camera. In 1999, doctors discovered a health problem that required surgery and Edward discovered it was time to return to some of the pleasures and passions of his earlier life. Since '99, he has worked to develop his skills as a photographer of nature and natural objects. His efforts and technique include photographing his subjects in their natural settings. Edward shares his work with others through lectures, exhibits, prints, note cards and this web site. His motive is to share the magnificent beauty of nature - especially the details - with you. Although photography is a hobby and passion, Edward recently retired from a large national brokerage firm to find more time for his wife Georgia, a retired professor of French literature, and with his two children and their families, including three grandchildren.
