Welcome to my website.
I became interested in photography at the tender age of ten, when I purchased my first camera. It was a simple, low cost camera and did not last long. My older brother helped me by lending me his camera. I then became the family photographer, recording family events and memories.
Quite early in life, I became interested in travel. At the University of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow, Poland, I was the head of the Sports and Tourism Department at the Student’s Association. That function allowed me to experience many interesting voyages and the photographs added value to the stories from my journeys.
Studying for a Degree in Mining Engineering and subsequent employment at the coal mines, put a hold on my photography hobby. Luckily, after immigrating to the United States, I was employed by Joy Global, a major global mining equipment manufacturer. A position in the International Sales Department opened the door to my worldwide travels. For over 30 years, I traveled to more than 50 countries on all continents, visited interesting places, met fantastic people and established lasting friendships. I have never left home without my camera, but my time for photography was always very limited. I wish I could revisit those places with my current equipment, skills and more time for shooting.
After retirement, I settled in the Sarasota, Florida area. My travels are limited now, so I became interested in nature photography, especially birds. On this website, I will be posting my new (and some old) photographs of nature, people and travels.
