Carl Baker started taking photos in high school and even learned how to develop and print black and white photos. But he did not get serious until digital photography became affordable in the early 2000’s. Digital photography allowed him to experiment in his photography and to greatly improve his photos. He moved to Newport from Houston, Texas 1.5 years ago and has been taking wildlife and landscape photos since his arrival.
Ted Crego was born and raised in Balwinsville, New York (near Syracuse). He attended Alfred University and received BS degree in Ceramic Engineering. He moved to Oregon in 1985 to work at Precision Castparts as a Process Engineer. He retired and moved to Newport in 2010. His photo interests are varied, but Ted enjoys finding images that others may overlook, such as patterns and macro shots. Lately he has been doing more panoramas and high dynamic range photos. Ted says, “There is always something new to learn in photography.”
