Robert Hunter ~ Photography


 About Robert:
I started in photography during high school with used B&W darkroom equipment and a Kodak 35mm camera. Had a great time for several years taking, developing and printing B&W pictures. (They're still one of my favorite types of photos). Later on I took primarily color slides and seldom dealt with printing photos. As the digital age came in, I started dabbling with electronic pictures and computer "darkroom" processing. (Lazy mans way to do photography-beats the heck out of mixing, storing, and staining your fingers brown with chemicals because you can't find your photo tongs)
My primary interest is nature photography and my favorite shooting area is coastal Georgia. I grew up in Savannah and, while I've had opportunity to travel in the US, Middle East and Asia, the saltwater creeks, marshes, and coastal islands are still my favorite landscapes.
I am now retired from a career in Geology during which I worked for the Georgia Dept of Mines, many years with a consulting company, had my own consulting co. for a while, and worked at the Savannah River Site. Current hobbies are photography, boating and general outdoor stuff. I hold a USCG Captains license and occasionally provide charters for small groups to visit several of the uninhabited Georgia barrier islands. This provides great photo ops for photographers.
