Pete began taking pictures in 1959 when he lived in Taiwan, as the son of an Army officer who was stationed on that beautiful island. Over the years his interest in photography continued to grow.
In 2001 Pete became an avid Adobe Photoshop user. Soon his darkroom was replaced by this new-found software. Pete’s interest in Photoshop and digital photography never slowed. He accepted invitations to travel to England to lecture on digital photography at the university level in Cornwall and again later to teach advanced Photoshop techniques to professional photographers in London.
After retiring, Pete joined the Silver Spring Camera Club where he is currently a director and frequent presenter. He is also very active in the Photographic Society of America (PSA), where he leads a photography study group and selects photographers for the monthly Showcase.
Pete has received numerous awards, both local and international, and has been recognized by his club as the Photographer of the Year. His work has hung in the Maryland State House.
Pete is a Certified Photography Judge in the state of Maryland. He has critiqued portfolios, judged dozens of camera club competitions in Maryland, New York, Oklahoma and for the Photographic Society of America (PSA). Pete feels that listening, evaluating, and learning from the feedback and suggestions of others is how we grow as artists.
