My Life - My Images
Sixty Years of Photojournalism and Counting
OK, this book with the sub-title "Sixty Years of Photojournalism and Counting" is just that, up from my 2009 first edition 200 page "Fifty Years - ." So now in 2013 I actually have news pictures from 1953 through 2013 as a published photographer/picture editor in this re-edited table top size 13" x 11" new book with 260 pages. But "counting" is what I've done, as old pictures that came up from newspaper blogs, and Picture of the Day from Stars & Stripes gave me images I didn't have during 2009 - 2012. My negatives always stayed with the newspapers I worked for. So this book has been put together from some old prints. clippings, and Kodachrome slide copies, etc. But today I shoot at will, where I want, when I want. So adding pages up to this editions 260 has more than 330 pictures. Hard to count since some of my new and old multi-picture pages here via Photoshop, make counting a hassle - just enjoy. This book is a mix of film and digital. The last three years I just use my small, compact Nikon D-40 as my camera - after 50 plus years with my trusty Leica M2's, even using it as a production camera for copies, etc. in this book and the 22 (Public and Private) others that have been on Blurb. I have used Nikon F's, and the 2000 and 2020 versions since 1965, up graded after the Asahi Pentax w/300mm lens bought in Korea was replaced for the motorized Nikon's.
I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted blurb.com books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.
