After years of point and shoot photography I enrolled in a professional course with The Photography Institute. I knew that if I tried to learn all that I needed to know on my own, I would just become lost and confused. I hesitated to begin the course because it is entirely online and I wondered if lacking the presence of an instructor would somehow diminish the experience. I was not disappointed. The course teaches everything one needs to begin a career as a professional photographer.  Of course, having a diploma in hand does not make one a great photographer. That takes time and a LOT of practice. I’m now retired so a grand career is probably not in the cards, but I’m having a blast and learning something new almost daily. Five years ago my partner and I  retired in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico. Moving to a foreign country can be daunting, but we have managed quite well and now enjoy the many wonders of this amazing city as well as the many friends we have met along the way. Photographic opportunities in this incredible country are boundless. My primary interest is urban architecture, but I also enjoy anything that captures the daily rhythm of life in any city or town. I enjoy discovering unique photographic opportunities. I hope you will follow along with me as I explore. I especially appreciate your comments and ‘likes.’


The Photography Institute offers a program designed by George Seper,  internationally known food, fashion and interiors photographer.
