AUTHORGene's interest in photography began when he was 3 years old. He was on a driving trip through the mountains of Colorado with his parents, and Gene threw their camera out the window of the moving car.
It wasn't until about 45 years ago that Gene was allowed to touch a camera again. He was glad when digital photography advanced to the point where he no longer had to spend long hours in the darkroom spilling chemicals on his clothing. His main concern now is that he has a tendency to trip over power cords in the digital darkroom.
Gene and his wife now live in the rugged Central Texas Hill Country with their two Labrador Retrievers (a/k/a "The Unruly Beasts"). He has traveled and photographed extensively in Europe, Iceland, and The Great American West.
