My photography started back in 1962. I purchased my first Nikon camera while serving in Taipei, Taiwan. Returning to the states, I worked part time as a photographer and full time as a tool and die maker in East Hartford, Connecticut. That is where I met my wife, and in no time, we had three wonderful sons.
In 1969 I moved my family to Lynn, Massachusetts. I had a full schedule photographing weddings and portraits, for studios in the Boston area, while still fulfilling a full time position as a tool and die maker. Precision in the tool industry coupled with the technical aspect of photography seemed to go hand in hand for me.
We later moved to my hometown of Meadville, PA., and again I worked in the tool and die business. In 1974, I opened my own thriving business “Photography by Lyle.” With my love for perfection in lighting, sense of composition, and in addition to full services; such as photographic make-over’s, in-house retouching and such, my business flourished as the word about the “new guy” got around!
After twenty years I said, “Enough!” but surprisingly the digital cameras brought a whole new world of intrigue and technology, and I began to enjoy the art of photography for the sake of “Art”. I pursued photographing nostalgic sceneries, which I love. I displayed my photography at local exhibits; which portrayed the transformations and enhancements of the new technical era, and received great accolades from those who viewed them.
My passions of photography are renewed, now in my later years, as I find a richness in an art that keeps growing, and growing.
Dwell with me and share the dreams of a man that looks, and creates through his artistic photographic expressions.
