I am a recently retired 34 year veteran of the Buffalo NY Police Department and spent the last 21 years of my career as a Detective in the Crime Scene Unit. I consider my self lucky that my job in the CSU allowed me to learn photography on a Bronica medium format film camera prior to the digital revolution and I was able to pick up the skill of how to process and develop my photos in an actual darkroom. Although it was fun to learn that way I can't say I miss the days of taking a photo and then keeping your fingers crossed that it came out OK as you developed it. There is something to be said for instant feedback from your camera. I have also been very lucky to work with a very talented group of photographers in our unit who have shared their skills and expertise with me. I must also give credit to my wife Sherri who is a very good photographer in her own right and has the artistic flair that I lack. We always enjoy spending a day taking photos at our regular vacation/snow bird spots in Oceanside California, Ogunquit Maine, Cancun Mexico, New Orleans LA or wherever the wind may take us. Traveling is one of our favorite things to do together.
