My name is Mark Coletta and I decided to start this website to share my photography with you. I retired a couple of years ago from the military and the government, after being laid-off from the banking industry, which has cost many people great disruption in their lives. I decided to take up photography again after many years and have found a great source of education and fellowship in The Cleveland Photographic Society. In CPS I found an organization that is really about friendship and unselfish sharing of information and techniques in the world of photography.
My wife, Mary Kay and I have lived in Cleveland Heights, Ohio for the past 19 years. We enjoy our yard, the flowers and cooking. We travel when we can and like to take advantage of the benefits available to us as military retirees. It helps keep the costs down and allows us to use the facilities as a great base from which to explore a lot of one day trips.
I am still working on what I like to do best as to the types of photos I like to take, but currently I lean towards outdoor, photojournalism and people photography
