Initially a self- taught photographer, Ray did receive his professional training through the New York Institute of Photography. He has been an active photographer for more than 50 years, using film in the 35mm and medium format range. As times changed, and new innovations in Photography developed, such as Digital cameras, which did not use film, finding someone to process professional film was not an easy task. Ray soon became more serious about photography on the Artistic and Creative side, and has chosen the Digital Medium as his primary source of photography. Originally from New Jersey, Ray was a member of the New Jersey based Tri-County Camera Club (rated nationally in the top ten ). Ray is also affiliated w/ the Photographic Society of America.
