Joe Berardi, Nature & Wildlife Photographer http://www.slotcanyonsutah.com http://joeberardiphotos.wordpress.com I started my second career as a landscape and wildlife photographer in 2003, after working 24 years in Electronic Engineering. I traveled all over the Southwest states of Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado building my original portfolio in 2003. That year I had the thrill of photographing my first elk rut at Rocky Mountain NP. I hiked my first slot canyon in 2006 with an adventure into Buckskin Gulch and I have been hooked ever since. I have hiked the Red Rock Country around Sedona hundreds of times. I have survived many monsoon thunderstorms at Canyon de Chelly yielding the best rainbow adventure a photographer could ever dream of. I hiked into the Superstition Wilderness (Arizona) for Spring Break 1976 introducing me to the world of the Sonora desert and the thrill of hiking it. I have published several books on photography and my hiking adventures including slot canyons. I was exposed to photography at an early age and wanted to take my own photographs. I purchased my first camera by age 13 using my newspaper earnings. I developed my first roll of B&W film by age 14 when I purchased a used 35mm SLR camera my freshman year in high school. During my freshman year I learned the fundamentals of photography and how to develop film and make prints. Growing up, I had a passion for making things and photography fit right in with this passion. My first photographs were of my hobbies; slot cars, model rockets, mini-bikes and boys being boys such as lifting weights. My later teenage years, I captured my skiing adventures, cars and motorcycle road trips. For my first career I followed my Dad into electronics and moved to Arizona to attend and graduate from Arizona State University. For a second career, I returned to my boyhood dream of photographing the world around me. I greatly enjoy photographing the outdoors on those solitude hikes and enjoy seeing nature's art revealed each season. 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. By 2004, the performance of digital photography was on par with 35mm film and I purchased my first Canon EOS DSLR camera and stop shooting film.
