My Name is Rob Shipman and I am a hobbyist photographer based out of Lansing Michigan.  

I started photography around 1970 shooting, developing, and printing black & white images from my own darkroom.  As the years went by and my children became older my passion for photography slowly faded.  I eventually settled into an IT position at General Motors and spent most of my career programming and integrating IT into manufacturing.

My passion for photography was recently rekindled by my interest in computer systems and the migration from film photography to digital.  I love creating digital images but also enjoy using a computer to do what I used to do in a darkroom.

I hope you enjoy my journey as I strive to improve my skills as a photographer.
