Jerry Walters is a professional photographer who has worked in the photography industry for nearly 30 years. His career started with an interest in photography as a hobby which led to an associates degree in photography. At this point he developed skills in fine art architectural photography. After a few years his interest in commercial and portrait photography allowed a transition into becoming a full time professional photographer.
During my school years I became highly aware of the power of photography and how it could change minds and social behaviors. Lewis and Hine opened the hearts of congress to pass child labor laws through their photo essay of Child Labor. Robert Frank documented humanity in the most critical way, creating a body of work that remains timeless. These photographers and 100 more so impressed me with the passion and dignity of photography.
I have some of my best memories in photography photographing images that tell stories about people. Conceptual themes that relate to a persons passions in life or careers in life. Another aspect of conceptualism that I enjoy and love to photograph is long exposure Black and White architectural photography. With this medium I don't take pictures I create art.
