More about Stan:
Stan graduated from Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 1967 and served two years of active duty at Parris Island, SC, from 1967 to 1969 as a Navy Dental Officer. Stan married his wife, Carol, while at school, and after the Navy, they returned to Ohio and he went into private practice. They have 3 daughters and eight grandchildren.

Stan has been actively involved in photography since high school when he worked on the school newspaper. He started on a press camera with sheet film, then on to 35mm and large format. He was introduced to a Leica camera 18 years ago which forced him to slow down and think. This took him back to the press camera days where he shot a football game with eight shots and would then contact print the result.

“While I was a good technician, I couldn’t call myself an artist at this point. The turning point for me was entering a Leica-sponsored class in NYC with Ralph Gibson. I started to look at light with a more discerning eye and explore what I was able to see. The hardest part was trying to define my own style.”
