I made a living by my camera for over 45 years and raised five fine children along the way. Most of my career was in the motion picture field . While working a the Boeing Airplane Commercial Division I created and ran the motion picture department from 1963 to 1968. Later as owner of the Seattle based film production company FILMSMITHS INTERNATIONAL INC. (working as cinematographer and film editor) we won many awards in the commercial and industrial field. My most important work (and the most fun ) was Director of Photography for. a feature length documentary film THRESHOLD THE BLUE ANGELS EXPERIENCE . It took a Silver Medal at the Atlanta Film Festival and was acclaimed as one of the finest aviation films ever made. Since retiring 20 years ago at 65 I am still having great fun taking pictures with my 8.1MP digital camera and messing with my computer.
