Thomas Woods – Featured IPA member

Bio   I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota as the son of a WWII veteran of Colorado’s U.S. Army Tenth Mountain Division.  As a consequence, my older brother Bob and I spent a lot of time outdoors with our father, skiing, hiking and so on, all year round. I was not a big fan of my father’s favorite pastime of “bushwhacking” on skis or hiking through the woods or mountains all day long off-trail.  As a young boy, I have a vivid memory of hundreds of jackrabbits running across the highway… Read More

Bio   I hate the cliché of starting a bio with ‘I’ve been interested in photography since I can remember’. The problem is In my case it’s actually true – but it just took me a long time to realise it. I recently discovered a shot of me taking a selfie- I was probably around 7/8 years old. I think the camera is a 35mm Chinon rangefinder camera. My folks used this for all the family pics for years. It had a fixed lens – but was pretty much all manual.  I… Read More

Bio I was born and educated in Germany where I grew up in the photography business of my father in the small town of Barntrup, 50 miles southwest of Hanover.

I still have that camera, but it has not been used for many years after I changed over to digital. I also learned my… Read More
