About Don

I am very proud to say that I am a Photographer.

Primarily self-taught, I pursue my passion for photography with energy, enthusiasm, and dedication.  No matter what I am shooting, or teaching, my approach is always the same: hard work, attention to detail, and a complete appreciation for the opportunity that was given to me.  My true love is photographing the outdoors and nature but, I also enjoy portraiture and travel photography.

I am very proud to say I am a New Englander.

I am a lifelong resident of New England and it is here that I pursue my love of photography.  I am every bit as comfortable in the woods of Maine as I am in the streets of Boston.  New England’s unique landscapes, diverse cultures, and rich history provide unlimited opportunities to create stirring images for myself and my clients.

In the following pages you will find samples of my work.  For a further glimpse into what I do, please  visit my personal website at:   www.toothakerphoto.com

Thankfully, what began as a hobby so long ago, has blossomed into a rewarding career that continues to inspire every facet of my life.  Simply put, I love what I do. I hope you allow me the pleasure of working with you.


About Bob 

 

I have been taking photographs for many years and have experience in 35mm, medium format and 4×5 view cameras. I now use of digital SLRs by Nikon and mirror less Leica and Fuji cameras. I have an assortment of lenses to complement these fine cameras!  I have years of experience with Canon cameras as well.

I graduated from Northeastern University, here in Massachusetts, with a BSEE and have worked in Marketing & Sales after starting out in Engineering but photography has always been a significant part of my life over the years.

PhoL2400415_RMR_September_2015_RMRingtography enables me to be creative and at the same time to work with the technical aspects required to get the image I desire.  I enjoy photographing various subjects and have been recognized by photographic associations for my work.  I have been selling prints & images to both consumers and corporations for interior design for many years and feel that a finished print really represents what photography is all about.  I take special care and pride in making my prints whether for sale or for my own enjoyment.

My personal web site can be found at: www.robertmringphotography.com.  You’ll see by my galleries there that New England is where I reside and take most of my photos.  Based in New England I have the luxury of being near the coast, the mountains and the foliage in the fall!  In particular, I really enjoy the Maine coast and have been photographing it for many years. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I do.  Thanks.
