I'm starting this 366 Project (it's a leap year) because it is my 50th year in photography.

I started my photographic journey in 1970 when I made made my first print in a darkroom. The darkroom was in my friend Steve's basement. Seeing that print come up in the developer had me hooked.

I was a yearbook photographer and have a degree in photography. I have worked in photo labs most of my life and even owned a rental darkroom and custom color lab.

I have photographed mostly in black and white on all formats of film, from 35 mm up to 4 x 5 large format sheet film.

In those 50 years I have shot exclusively in b&w. I started this project to grow as a photographer and I have gotten an interest in color photography. So starting March 1st 2020 I'm going to step out of my comfort zone and start shooting in color.

Now that I have photographed in color for the month of March I'm going back to my first love b&w. I'll still shoot color for my personal work. For my fine art work I'm going to stick to b&w.
