Description Ford Island was the epicenter of the attack on December 7, 1941. Its seaplane base had dozens of long-range PBY patrol bombers capable of locating the Japanese fleet after the attack. Along her coast were moored seven of the Pearl Harbor fleets nine battleships. It is also where the Pacific Fleets three carriers would have moored had they been in port that day. The attack destroyed nearly all of the patrol planes and disabled the Pacific Fleets battleship force, making it impossible for the U.S. to carry the fight to Japan to spoil the Japanese expansion in the Pacific. Today, Hangar 79 contains the Pacific Aviation Museum and still has bullet holes in its windows and walls from the attack in 1941.
Jon Burch, Loveland, Colorado Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement My first camera was a 35mm Yashica, acquired by trading an ancient Royal typewriter to a fellow college student who was desperate to finish a term paper. It was a long time ago and that camera was my passport to an art that has fascinated me ever since.
I owned a professional studio in central Kansas for 20 years until I sold the business and moved to Colorado. Part of the studio’s early success came from introducing outdoor portraiture using controlled lighting techniques that my clients were used to seeing only in studio-produced portraits.
In addition to portraits of all types, business and corporate, family, glamour, bridal, and high school seniors, the studio’s operations included a video recording studio and an on-site production lab that produced award-winning, heritage-quality color portraits.
Photography is all about using light to capture the emotion and the beauty of a fleeting moment. Discover the difference; let someone who knows how to use light create a vibrant portrait that reflects you and your world.
