Calvin Wolford, Hagerstown,Md Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement Hi Folks, I was born in Hagerstown Md, but rised in the country. As a boy i loved nature to the max. I was always in the woods and down at the Conococheague creek fishing and camping every chance i got. Then at seventeen had my mother sign for me to go in the navy for more adventure. Out at sea you see alot of sunsets and sunrises. That's when i got hooked on photography! The only foreign port i seen was Lisbon Portagal. That city was beautiful for taking photographs.The old statues and huge fountains with statues was great photographs. From then on i was a picture taking crazyman, and have been since. That was thirty-seven years ago and i still enjoy my photography,if not more. I drove a semi truck for thirty years seeing the all 48 states and canada and never had much time to stop to take very many photographs. But now at 54 and retired, i have a my 35 mm in my hand almost everyday. Still shooting film! But one day i know i need to get a good digital. No i didn't go to college for photography or any school. Started with pentax 1000 manual and the school of hard knocks. Read a lot of books and ask alot of questions.People say, i have a great eye for great photography. If i can sell a print here and there, great, if i don't i'll still be happy and amazed what i can do for myself with a camera.
