Hi. Welcome to my photo blog. My photography business goes under the name of Mitchell R. Grosky Photography, but please feel free to call me Mitch.
I am a freelance photographer in a small town in Central Massachusetts. I have been in love with photography and taking photos of people and places since I bought my first film Pentax Super Program SLR back about 30 years ago. Now, nearly all of my photography is Digital, via my Nikon D200, Nikon D80, Canon Rebel XT, and even my new pocketable Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. In addition, I have owned digital cameras from Olympus and Sony, but I would have to say that Nikon is my camera of choice. I use Nikkor lenses generally, my Nikkor VR 18-200 3.5-5.6 and my Nikkor 18-70 3.5-4.5 getting most of my photographic action. My Canon is generally a backup, and I keep a Canon 18-55 zoom on it, but I replace it, for specical occasions, with the image-stabilized ultrasonic 75-300 lens or the 1.8 50mm lens.
For developing, I do a great deal of post-processing, using Picassa 2.0 for everyday work, and Photoshop Elements 6.0 for most of my publishable work. For in-house printing, I generally use either my Canon i9900 or my Canon Pixma iP4600.
I have recently retired as an elementary school principal after spending 35 years in education. Aside from my years as an administrator, I was a classroom teacher for 29 years, teaching students in elementary, middle school, and high school. I have always been known for my photos of children in the classroom, and the walls of my schools came alive with nearly a thousand 5×7 and 8×10 photos of children excited by their learning.
My wife–who is a middle schools special needs teacher–and I love to travel, and over the past 20 years we have cruised to Canada, nearly every island in the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, and to 15-20 European destinations. At times we have traveled with my daughter (currently completing her Master’s Degree in early childhood education), and my son, who is both working and attending community college.
My travels have provided me with the material for 35,000 to 45,000 photos, and hours upon hours of joy.
I recently returned from a whirlwind 27 day cross-country trip from Boston as far west as Wyoming and Utah and then back. 8000 miles and nearly 9000 photos later, I am hoping to one day find a publisher who is interested in a photography book narrating my experiences.
My photography business has been part-time until now, and has focused on both weddings and senior photos. Having just retired, I will expand slightly, but really wish to focus on landscapes and cityscapes. I am also exploring entering the world of stock photography.
