My name is Gary. I’ve been a digital photographer since 2003. I started out with a Nikon Coolpix 4300 point & shoot camera, and moved to a Cannon PowerShot A1000. Then I moved up to an Olympus mirrorless 4/3 E-510, then to an Olympus E-620, and finally upgraded to an Olympus micro 4/3 O-MD E-M1 Mk II. I like small light-weight cameras!! I own 8 m.zuiko Olympus lens now. I joined the IEPC about 2 years ago and really enjoy the experience. I like to
“shoot“ birds, flowers, insects, landscapes, seascapes, travel sites, pets, wildlife, cloud patterns, nature.
I am a retired research engineer and software engineer and worked in Ventura County. I moved to Menifee, Ca about 4 years ago this December.
I am married to Patti Matthews and have a daughter Celeste who lives in Ventura, Ca.
My hobbies include photography, walking, bike riding, reading, amateur astronomy, and watching old movies.
I attend Revival Christian Fellowship in Menifee, Ca.
