Hello, I am Bob Peterson from Annapolis, Maryland. Originally from western Pennsylvania, my wife Ruth and I have lived in Anne Arundel County for more than 45 years. We raised three fine sons, who all still live and work in this area. I retired from Boeing in 2014 and now spend a lot of my free time taking photos of this lovely area.
I started in photography as a young man with both 35mm and medium format film cameras. I did weddings and a lot of travel photography and had my own darkroom, to include color printing. However, as my kids started growing up and I got busy with work, I slipped back to using point and shoot cameras for many years, to include my first few digital cameras. I got back into photography about six years ago and am primarily shooting landscapes, architecture, and nature photography.
My favorite subjects are historic Annapolis and the Naval Academy. My photographs are featured in the Annapolis Visitor’s Center on West Street, in the lobby of the Clantenoff Pavilion at the Anne Arundel Medical Center, on the cover of several Annapolis Visitor’s Guides, and on the covers of the December 2014 edition of Chesapeake Bay Magazine and the Summer 2017 edition of Marina Life Magazine.
My wife and I sponsor Midshipmen from the Naval Academy and spend a lot of time on the yard. I am also a volunteer photographer for Historic London Town and Gardens and am a board member of the Maryland Federation of Art (MFA). I have exhibited my photographs in numerous juried shows at the MFA Circle Gallery and other venues. I am also a member of the Digital Photography Club of Annapolis (DPCA).
Please take the time to review my web site. If you would like to purchase any of my photography, just click on the Gallery link where you can purchase prints of any of the photos in the gallery. I also post regularly to my Facebook and Instagram pages. If you see a photograph on either of these pages that you would like to purchase that are not in my gallery, please let me know. I do not do any work for hire, for me photography is primarily a love, not a job.
