Joe Berardi, Photographer My first photographs of Arizona were taken when I was a college student. I arrived in Arizona as a college transfer student in 1975. For Spring Break 1976, I organized a backpacking trip into the Superstition Wilderness with my dorm buddies at ASU. None of us were from the southwest and the five of us spent a week wandering the Superstition Wilderness. I brought along my little Kodak 110 camera and documented our adventure. Photography is my second career after almost twenty-four years in Electronic Engineering. I started building a professional portfolio in 2003 by traveling all over Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado shooting landscapes, nature, historical sites and wildlife scenes. Although I started my professional portfolio in 2003 with 35mm film, I fully embraced digital photography because of my EE background and had been using a digital camera since 1996. At the end of 2003, I was shooting with a 4MP Digital Camera used in parallel with a 35mm film SLR. By the middle of 2004, the performance of digital photography was on par (close enough) with 35mm film and I purchased a Canon EOS DSLR camera and stop shooting film. I started selling photographs at local Art Shows in 2004. I live within 50 miles of Sedona and have traveled there over a hundred times hiking and photographing the red rocks. The Grand Canyon is also in day trip range and I have photographed the South Rim many times. My favorite time of year at the Grand Canyon has been winter which usually requires staying overnight to reduce winter driving. I have explored four slot canyons in Arizona and three slot canyons in Utah. Although I have hiked the West Fork trail several times before, 2012 was the first time I hiked into the water filled narrows of the West Fork of Oak Creek. I had hiked the Lower Narrows in Zion NP, Utah in 2011 and noticed the similarity on a much smaller scale. I have photographed the elk rut at Rocky Mountain N.P. six times since turning pro and it is my favorite place for observing the elk mating season. I’ve photographed Horseshoe Bend, Canyon de Chelly and Monument Valley many times. I have ventured as far away as Oregon photographing the waterfalls and covered bridges to Yellowstone in Wyoming/Montana where the park seems to go on forever and there is wildlife everywhere. Along the way in my travels I have been to Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Park in California.
