Bob's journey in photography started in 2000 with a simple disposable 35 mm camera and a desire to show people the sights from a trip to New England. Since then he has tried to learn everything he can to improve his photography. He particularly enjoys landscape and wildlife photography, but lately has been trying his hand at portrait and sports photography. Bob started with the club in 2010 looking to learn more about photography. In the time since, he has been on the show committee and held the positions of secretary, vice-president, and now president.
