When I opened The Digital Darkroom in 2002 my intention was to provide scanning, editing, printing and other services for pro photographers, many of whom I knew from my work in the pro photolab business. But because so many pros were making the transition from film to digital it soon became apparent that I could serve them best by teaching what I had learned from my own film-to-digital shift rather than simply providing services. (Much like the “teach a man to fish” quote by Lao Tzu.) As digital photography blossomed in the early 2000’s my clientele quickly expanded to all sorts of photographers, pro and hobbyist. In the years since 2002 I have met so many interesting and creative people who inspire me on a daily basis with the work they create and the paths they are on.
