My involvement with photography began when I was 12 years old when my father introduced me to his 35mm Voigtländer Vito III Rangefinder camera, which I still own to this day. I have over 45 years of experience with photography.
I am a Master Photographer and Master Print Maker with a long and established background in Digital and Film Imaging systems.
Throughout most of my youth, I continued my photographic pursuits as an amateur photographer until at the age of 24 years old I began work at The Wall Street Journal.
My career with The Wall Street Journal introduced me to graphic arts and digital imaging on a large scale professional level. I worked at an engineering level with digital drum film scanners and flatbed laser image scanners for reproduction of the newspaper in the pre-press department. I also worked heavily at an engineering level with 1:1 large format film cameras used in the graphic arts department. By the end of a 26 year career with 'The Journal' I had worked with just about every technology used in newspapers for graphic arts reproductions systems, offset printing presses, high quality laser imaging systems and digital printing systems.
I retired from The Wall Street Journal in early 2007 and founded my own private photography business, Gray Photography LLC.
I've worked in just about every aspect of the photography business over the years and today I consider myself a semi-retired, Nature, Wildlife and Landscape photographer.
I make and sell fine art photographic prints, do occasional private photography events and spend most of my time exploring the outdoor scenes and wildlife that Colorado and the United States has to offer. I am also available as a private photography instructor and I host photography workshops and photo tours.
