About Ray

Professional Photographer since 1965. Specialized in studio and location photography. Worked with all formats, including digital (since the beginning of digital). I also have extensive experience in dark room procedures; which includes B&W and color processing and printing. After digital became available, I've had many years of experience in Adobe Photoshop.

My first job was working for a commercial photographer in Springfield Illinois. The experiences on the job were invaluable for my career. I was able to apply and fine tune the tools that I had learned at school. This included B& W and color processing and printing. Also having a chemistry background, I was able to experiment with various chemicals to achieve creative results. After two years I freelanced, specializing in commercial an architectural photography. Three years
later I moved to St. Louis, MO and spent the next 45 years in the commercial field of photography.

Because of my vast experience in all phases of photography, I not only was able to complete and accomplish all assignments required of me, but in many instances improve the final product through innovative techniques that had not been accomplished before. I also have had experience in teaching at a Junior college in St. Louis county.

Photography today (professional and armature) is almost exclusive in digital. However with my almost 50 years of experience in all phases of photography, I am and will be able to present old methods and innovative methods of my beloved profession

Photography

I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in 1965. After graduating, I have continuously worked in various commercial photography studios in Illinois and Missouri. I have also freelanced in both of those states. My expertise was/is in studio and location; working with many advertising companies and blue chip companies.

Along the way I have had experience with all formats of cameras (35mm, medium format, 4x5, 8x10).
Also I have many years of experience with digital photography; having used digital from its' inception. I've also used Adobe Photoshop since the beginning of this period. I have also tutored a number of young photographers along the way.
