Robert is a retired professor from the University of New Mexico. Originally from New York, he has spent most of the last thirty-five years in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has always had an interest in photography: "My interest in photography began during my childhood; my father was always shooting slides. I view photography as a great creative outlet; a chance to explore the wonders of our world and capture those fleeting moments that will serve as permanent reminders of the beauty around us. When that intersection of the magic, moment and the beauty of the scene is captured it is a wonderful event. The truth is one never knows when that special time will occur; that is the beauty, the fun and the challenge of photography as an art form."
