About Me

Paul Mohr's Biography

 I started in photography in 1976 with a beginning photo class at the local adult night-school. It wasn't long before I set up my

own darkroom in a spare bedroom at home. At first I was trying to use the "appropriate" film for each occasion, and as a 

result was having difficulty getting consistent results. I eventually settled on Tri-X with the idea that I would learn its "habits

and tendencies" and eliminate the distraction of too many films and choices. I'm still using Tri-X with all my cameras.

 

A huge photographic leap came in 1990 when I  retired from teaching. All of a sudden I had time to PRINT ON A REGULAR

BASIS. That was the turning point for me as everything photographic, up to that time, had been sporadic because of the 

time-demands of my teaching.

 

Over the years I have photographed a wide range of animate and inanimate objects. For the past several years I have

concentrated on naturally lit interiors (old buildings) and figure studies. I have also developed an interest in producing

panoramic and pinhole images.

 

I am a Charter Member of Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento, and do maintain a Portfolio Drawer at the gallery.
