Me at the Burlington waterfront. Photo by Jenna Geery.
I live in Clarendon, Vermont, with my wife of 34 years. We have two awesome daughters. We have a great house in a beautiful spot and two dogs.
By some crazy miracle, I’ve been able to make a living with my photography since about 1981, when my first daughter was born. Of course, there have been years when “making a living” is a matter of definition.
I do have two college degrees, but I got them so long ago, I’m pretty sure they’ve expired. I can’t say I’ve ever used them for gainful employment anyway. I guess it’s true that I first became interested in photography while working on my degree in journalism, so maybe that counts.
My all consuming passion is photography. That and running a business. The really nice thing is that when business is off, I still have photography. In fact, when business is off, I have more time for photography, so there is a bit of a conflict there. Be broke, shoot more; make money, shoot less. It seems backwards.
In the category of other activities, I’m into skiing (in a big way), biking, and kayaking. All these activities are not exclusive of photography, as I rarely do any of them without a camera.
