This is my first post of many on my updated website by Jerry Roek. I’ve been a SmugMug member for many years. Actually last year I was lucky enough to win a free year of hosting through them by winning a photography contest that the Detroit SmugMug group sponsored. My first website I did myself and it wasn’t very professional looking. Jerry has brought my website up to that level, thank you Jerry!
I’ll tell you a funny story about how this all came about. In November I joined the Art Is In Market at Partridge Creek in Clinton Twp. Michigan. I have a display of my photography there. I have been printing out my photos on 20×30 poster paper at Costco and then taking it to Fedex to cut out (Thanks Alanna St. Laurent and Jesse Welter for the tip I learned at their selling at Art Fairs Workshop they had in 2012 through Motor City Photography Workshops a Meetup Group). I was at the Fedex on Garfield in Sterling Heights cutting out my photos but who comes up and talks to me but this guy in a SmugMug baseball cap. He introduces himself, it’s Jerry! I’ve talked with him online but never in person. Jerry told me about his business of setting of websites and here we are! I didn’t know how to set up a blog and Jerry pointed me here to WordPress.com to start.
I hope you will enjoy my blog and my adventures in photography with me!
