Thomas Bishop



Although Thomas Bishop has had "SLR" in his vocabulary since 1971, it has been only recent years that photography has had a resurgence with the purchase of a Nikon DSLR and various lenses/accessories. Thomas strives to capture the essence of a place in time; to share the wonders of this world; to preserve a moment so that others may enjoy the same feeling. This is no small task. Effectively communicating the four dimensions of the world along with thoughts and emotions which, to some, may be considered universal, takes special skill; condensing those into two dimensions becomes even more challenging.

As time goes on there are more opportunities for work as a photographer in one manner or another. Mostly my step-daughter and my granddaughters are there to provide subjects; business cards/sites portraits as well as a less-expensive alternative to the school picture mass media companies that charge high prices for an eight-second portrait session. Haven't got paid for any of this yet but I figure it's just good training experience.

Back from the Colorado Plateau

Published July 23rd, 2011

With the absoutely crazy idea of visiting 3 national parks in as many days, I return from Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion with a few hundred shots. Some of them are OK. Got some nice ones from Cape Royal (G.C.) at sunset. Ironically, the only one from that trip chosen to enter in the Oregon State Fair was that of a dead tree silhouetted in the noonday sun. It could have been taken anywhere.
