Larry speaks about himself. "I am nearer the end of my life than the beginning. My life has been a series of endeavors at learning where I might fit into this world and more importantly getting to know myself and being comfortable with me. Since that is nearing completion, I think that I might like to share bits and pieces of myself with others. Photography is the vehicle through which I can do that. No one else sees the world through my eyes. I see things that I like. I like them because I am. Through photography, I can try to share them with others. I am frustrated much of the time because I lack the technical proficiency to capture that which I desire to share. I am working on that.
I use a Canon 7D Digital SLR. I use a home built computer system. I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 to optimize my images. I print with an Epson R2880 printer. I recently added a DJI Phantom 3 Pro quadcopter as a flying camera. I enjoy showing the beauty of nature. Much of my work is or has been done at Gorman Nature Center and Kingwood Center, Mansfield."
