Thank you also for visiting MrCamera Imaging

Just a bit about my photographic journey.  I served as a school photographer many years ago and sold photos to parents and students as a sideline.  A bit of commission work (bands, theater groups, company anniversaries, a few weddings) followed. 

A chance purchase of an antique camera at a local auction led to collecting fever (my wife says that something "snapped" inside of me) and a business buying and selling used and antique cameras. Many shows in the Twin Cities area helped my wife and I put the kids through college, but the emergence of online auction markets changed the landscape for the business dramatically.  However, the legacy of the "MrCamera Photographic Collectibles" business was an interest in 3D stereoscopic photography. I first used my collectible 35 mm stereo cameras from the 1950's but eagerly embraced digital 3D equipment as it emerged.  Images of delicate objects such as roses, lilies and orchids were captured so much better in three dimensions that I shot almost exclusively in stereo from  2012-2015.  My work as game day photographer for the Eau Claire Express baseball organization moved me to capturing high speed action shots and creating collage posters using professional SLR equipment.  I'm not yet making the jump to mirrorless equipment. 

Eau Claire Express images fueled my latest imaging passion, the creation of mixed media photo-acrylic artworks.  They are photo-inspired, acrylic images on canvas displayed in gallery float mounts.
