Before long, he built his own fully equipped darkroom and was teaching basic photography classes in local camera shops. He fell in love with photojournalism when he had the opportunity to freelance for two local newspapers and took every assignment offered, and was soon selling photographs of local scenes on consignment in local shops. In 1986, he and his wife, Betty, relocated to Naples, Florida. In 2003, after selling his 35-year old U. S.
