T. Anthony (Ted)
My name is Ted and I live in a small town in mid-Michigan between Saginaw and Flint. My education includes a technical degree in photography, an AAS in Music, a BA in Math Education and an MA in Technology. In the past I have taught Jr. High, High School, Adult Ed, and College; mostly mathematics. But I have also worked in retail and sweated in a factory.
My favorite job of all times was when I operated my own photography business which catered to weddings, portraits and schools. But after 17+ years it was getting difficult to work a full time job while at the same time running a photography business in the evenings and on weekends. Therefore, my passion for photography was put on hold for several years.
My next endeavor ended up taking me in a totally different direction. After a forced retirement I decided to turn a hobby into another small business. Presently I turn wood into functional works of art on my wood lathe. You can see some of my creations at www.thelatentlog.com. One of the things that I found I had to do in order to be accepted into art shows was to send in high quality photos of my work to the juries. It was then that I finally decided to invest in my first digital camera. Why pay someone else to take jury photos when I could take them myself.
The thing is, once I started taking photos again, I realized how much I had missed it. But now, instead of photographing weddings and portraits, I photograph, well, whatever I want. And I teach photography to others with the desire to learn. Now, for the first time in several years, photography is fun again.
