Herbert Gaidus

    Greetings fellow SRPS photographers.

    My name is Herb Gaidus, and I joined the club a few years after moving to the west coast from NJ 6 years ago.

    I have been active in photography since I was 8 years old, when my Dad introduced me to B&W processing in our home darkroom under the basement stairs.

    Ansel Adams was always my inspiration, and I would dream of the American West while living in Northern New Jersey for the first 60 years of my life.

    My interest in serious photography had faded a bit until I joined the club and had my childhood passion reignited. I slowly improved my artistic and technical photographic skills through feedback from the monthly competitions and from fellow members who kindly showed me that there was still a lot that I could learn from those with greater expertise.

    I am currently serving the club as Treasurer, and look forward to sharing with club members many creative years in the future.
