Paul Ferrara, Las Vegas (area) Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement 30 years ago I was in a darkroom, when chemicals were used to create a photographic image at my high school photography class. Since then, I have not put down the camera: The most fascinating thing about photography is when the camera meets the eye it leaves everlasting results; life as we know it is perpetually moving and to be able to freeze that moment in time and harness its beauty to muse the eye that's worth the endeavor. I Travel around the world and my camera is like the American Express card I never leave home without it. As with any other photographer, you can't take good pictures sitting on the couch. So, I keep searching for that one good shot, that one moment in time, that one given opportunity to appease the eye. Whether or not it's here in this great country we call America,or elsewhere that one good shot awaits.
