Ralph Smith created greendrakephoto.com to display his photographs. Like many, Ralph has been taking photos all his life. After he retired from academic life, he has devoted his free time to improving his photography. Creating this web site has been an important step to realizing his life-long dream of devoting serious time to photography. Ralph has taken photographic workshops from notable Colorado photographers such as John Fielder and Vic Schendel.
Ralph’s passion is his family and the outdoors, especially Northern and Eastern Colorado. Photographing the stars has been particularly rewarding, and Northern Colorado lends itself well for this activity. Ready access to Rocky Mountain National Park, the Pawnee National Grasslands, and the Rocky Mountains provides many opportunities for great pnotographs.
Ralph and Janet travel more now, and sharing travel photographs will often be added to the site. Comments and correspondence are welcome. Enjoy!
