Kevin Merchant Biography
Shortly after moving to Washington, I took up the sport of mountain climbing. Mt. Rainier, dominant in the landscape of Seattle, called to me. I soon climbed it with friends, one of whom became my wife. At first, I thought I would climb Mt. Rainier and that would be the end of it. In the following years, climbing became more of a passion, to the point where I took a couple of climbing courses offered by the Seattle Mountaineers. My wife and the camera became constant companions in the mountains. Eventually my part time interest in photography became a full time passion.
Many years passed before this became a full time pursuit. I have been shooting since 1984, with an eye towards making it a full time occupation. In September of 2005, that time arrived.
In the transition from film to digital capture, my 25 year career in the world of digital electronics and software design is now coming to the forefront in my photographic and business activities. Having used a personal computer from the very early days of DOS (IBM DOS that is) has enabled me to use the computer in all aspects for both film and digital capture in the digital darkroom. I have been using Photoshop since the release of version 3 (on an Apple Macintosh). In 1998 I attended a three day Photoshop class taught by the nationally recognized Photoshop expert Ben Wilmore.
