Don Menges

Menges-bioPix-06Formerly a math teacher, in 1990 I became the first Technology Integration Teacher in New York State. For the next seventeen years I taught teachers how to incorporate technology into their instructional strategies and students how to use technology as a tool to learn and publish their accomplishments.

Photography is a natural motivator for kids. My students and I used some of the very early digital cameras and enjoyed the evolution of them as we captured images of people, bugs, architecture, science experiments, and much more. I was fascinated with how even reluctant students would write volumes about the images they captured as if they were compelled to explain what this little slice of time meant to them.Menges-Images 02

I partially retired in 2004 and decided to take my own interest in photography to the next level and I’ve been learning and practicing ever since. I enjoy photographing everything, always looking for that image that clearly defines a person, a place, or a thing.  Often it’s just capturing an image that describes an ordinary thing in an extraordinary manner.

In the fall of 2007 my part time position was terminated and I decided to become more serious about capturing images. My goal for 2008 was to build a network within the Rochester photographic community to learn from those with much more experience. I’ve become a member of several photography groups including; Nikonians, several Flickr Groups (many meet locally),  the Rochester Area Nature Photography Meetup Group, the National Association of Professional Photographers (NAPP), the Greater Rochester PrMenges-Image_04ofessional Photographers (GRPP),  and the Camera Rochester Photography Club.

Currently I print and frame all of my own work. Therefore, any of the images in this collection can be purchased in any size you like.
