He learned to load his own film, develop and print. His mentors were certified professional hospital photographers. There was no internet. He learned through trial and error, at the University of Hard Knocks, reading literature, asking questions of photographers at the photo store, and two all day programs with Nikon. He continues to learn and apply the science and art of photography daily. Paul has no secrets and is both objective and subjective when critiquing his own work and that of others. hank you for visiting ....
