My name is Peter and I live in upstate New York. I guess I think of myself as an artist first and a photographer second. Photographers take pictures with cameras, and often take very nice pictures with very nice cameras, but artist just make art with whatever medium serves their creativity. My father bought me my first camera when I was 12, it was a Pentax k1000, and I fell in love right away. Still to this day, when I put my eye to the viewfinder, I don’t want to leave. I wish I could live in there. I love creating images. I suppose I’m the nostalgic type, but there’s just no substitute for film.
