About Mike

I have been taking pictures for over 22 years. The pictures are of animals in the wild, people, places and things. Most of the pictures I have taken are with out a flash. I was in the boy scouts for 8 years or so in which time I got to enjoy the outdoors. I have been on many vacations from Wyoming to Germany to Italy, and on those trips I took a lot of pictures.

I learned photography by trial and error.

I have several cameras from the older film to the new digital (3.2mp to my new one 18mp). I have been using Adobe Lightroom 3 for over a year and learning to use Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

I started at around age 5. As I got older I got much better, then went into Scouting and earned several Merit badges in and above the water, including some of these. Swimming, lifesaving, rowing, sailing and of course canoeing.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Computer

I have been using computers sense I took Computer Programming classes in College around 1986. I would have no problem teaching the basics, how to back up files, where to put them, “ organize “, and how to find lost files. I also know how to use many software programs.
I have had Adobe Lightroom 3 sense July 2010 and learned quite a bit on how to use it. I have only had Adobe Photoshop 6 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 3, sense October 2010 and learning the basics fast. My friend has Adobe premium CS5 so I have been playing with it for only a year or so. Photoshop cs5 extended is a very nice improvement and fun to work with.


I received my first manual camera from my uncle when I was on vacation in Germany at age 20. I got my first lesson on the way up to the Neuschwanstein Castle In Germany. I was told how to set F-stops for proper exposure. After that I got several good pictures of the Castle, and from the inside out down to the town below. A few years after that trip a friend of my dad’s gave me another camera with a program/automatic mode which got me on the track of learning on my own. I spent most of my time outdoors, so I ended up specializing in taking pictures without a flash and in low light conditions. Over many years I have collected 5 film cameras, from my first Agfa to Minolta 9XI. Then the digital age came in and I stayed out of them for some time because of the cost. I started with a Kodak DC50 with about a 1Mp and no led screen and there was a converting program you had to use to see the pictures, not a fun camera to use. Soon after I Bought a new Canon Power Shot S1 Is 3.2mp which had a flip out led screen and auto and manual settings which I used for many years taking pictures of family, wild life, and even some very good pictures taken in several caves. Then it was time to upgrade to a Canon T2I 18mp with a few lenses which I have had for a few years, then sold it to upgrade to the T3I 18mp. With a few new features, and picked up a better lens too.


I have been swimming for a long time. I earned several merit badges in the Boy Scouts for swimming, life saving, and I even have some for rowing and canoeing. Once upon a time I was BSA CPR certified for several years. I have also helped to teach several of the merit badges. As you can see, I am no stranger to the water.
