Photography

"...between my photography equipment, my computer, its software and my printer, each photograph is my art from the click of the shutter all the way through being packaged for shipping."

From Martin: I became interested in photography while I was in middle school when I took a photography class as an elective. I was on the middle school yearbook staff and I became the school photographer. I used the school's box camera. The school had a small darkroom and all the photography was black and white. This sparked my interest in photography. I ended up getting some used photography equipment, including an enlarger and I started doing my own black and white photography and development in my parents' garage.

After I was married, I bought my first 35mm film camera (a Pentax K 1000) so I could take pictures of some of the wildlife that I was rescuing; and the wildlife that I would discover on my wanders through Southern Utah...(read more)

From Martin continued: We started adding my photographs to a slideshow for my wildlife educational outreach programs. Every once in a while someone would ask if they could get one of my photographs. I would tell them for a donation to the SWF I would give them one. Slowly, I started collecting old used film photography equipment.

One day while providing a Parowan Gap Field Excursion Program for a group of 6th graders from the Washington Episcopal School, from Washington DC; I was introduced to a wonderful couple who are avid photographers that lived in Southern California. After the field excursion program was over the wife, Ann, came up to me and asked if that was my wife taking pictures?

I said "Yes that's my wife Susan."

Then Ann asked, "Is that your only camera?"

I said, "No, that is Susan's camera. I have an old Pentax K 1000 35mm film camera."

Ann went on to say, "You need a new camera."

My response was, "Cameras are expensive and any extra money that we have available has to go to our wildlife rescue."

Ann looked at her husband, Stan, with a big grin on her face. Stan gave her a quick nod of his head, and Ann said, "I have a nearly new Nikon D 70 that we are not using anymore and on our next trip to Southern Utah in about a month I will bring the camera for you."

I thought, "How wonderful would that be? An almost new digital SLR Camera."

Being true to their word on their next trip to Southern Utah, they not only brought the camera, but hundreds of dollars’ worth of lenses, tripods, memory cards, battery packs and more. They brought me everything that I would need to enter the digital world of photography.

Since then we have added to our collection watching for good deals on used equipment (and an occasional new one) which includes a Nikon D810 professional quality camera and a Nikon 800mm lens. So now virtually everywhere I go, I haul around a ton of wonderful photography equipment so that any moment if I see something wonderful happening I will be able to catch it on film.

I currently have a Canon professional photo printer that I use to print all of my photography; it will print up to a 13" x 19" size. So between my photography equipment, my computer, its software and my printer, each photograph is my art from the click of the shutter all the way through being packaged for shipping.
