Jerry, grew up in Ohio, the son of a pastor and oldest of six children. His love for photography began when his father loaned him his Argus C3 film camera to take pictures at the Youth for Christ Capital Teen Convention in Washington DC in 1960. He documented family and Youth for Christ events through high school and college. Upon college graduation he served as Youth for Christ director and later as Minister of Education Minister for churches in California, Arizona and Texas.
Jerry’s continued photography interest has led him to nine years with the Dallas Camera Club, serving as the membership chair for two years and the president for three years. He also does free-lance event photography, photographic art photography and works with Showcase Photographers for realtors.
Jerry and his lovely wife, Norma, have three children and seven grandchildren. Jerry and Norma are active members of their Life Group (Sunday School Class) at Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall, Texas.
