There's nothing like discovering a fandom late. I attended my first Dark Shadows Festival in 2003, and also
attended the "Dark Shadows Weekend" in Tarrytown in August 2004.
Photography has been an interest of mine since I was old enough to be trusted with my mother's pre war German folding
camera and external light meter. As a kid back in the 60's I taught myself to do my own black and white processing and
printing. (Any one else out there remember Tri X Pan and square 120 negatives?) I carried this interest with me
when I got involved in Fandom in 1975.
I have been taking photographs at conventions since 1977. In 1979 I purchased my trusty Minolta SRT 200,
and a telephoto lens, simply because I was tired of having pictures of "ants" on stage. Thus, it was second nature for
me to bring this camera equipment and high speed film to the Fests, and snap photos like a tourist gone berserk. Imagine
how out of control I became when I got a used digital camera for cheap on Ebay!
For the fellow photography wonks, on each page I give information on the camera, lens and film with which the shots were
Hope you enjoy.
