September 15, 2015: Competition with Judge Don Rosenberger

_DSC9921_(1)Don Rosenberger sold all his camera gear and walked away from photography.  But that was back in 1983.  He picked up a camera again in 2005 and has spent most of his weekends and vacation time trying to make up for those years he walked away.

In the years since 2005 he has worked with and been mentored by a great group of well known and some not so well known photographers.   Today Don is still driven by the passion and urge to always create something better and constantly strive to take his work to the next level.

In addition to pursuing his personal work he is a partner in Road Runner Photography Tours and leads national and international photography tours.
