About the Author

Al Gerk
apgerk Huntington Beach, California, USA
The photographer, Al Gerk, is a retired Engineering and Management professional living in the downtown district of Huntington Beach. Dr. Gerk has returned to his first love, photography, after almost a forty year absence. In all of his work he is supported by his muse, Stella (who happens to be his wife) who is an active participant in the work. Today the digital age has revolutionized the technology of photography but the most important “Eye of the Photographer” remains essentially unchanged. “I want to share the beauty that surrounds all of us and take photographs that people pause, think, and want to come back to again and again. For this it remains that one needs the right aesthetic concept and then be in the right place, at right time before the power of the new technology is of any value.” The Authors would welcome your comments or questions at
