Don Rotteck joined the Photographers’ Connection as an instructor in the fall of 2014, after 35 years of work in the photo industry as a salesman, store and General Manager positions.
Don has acquired an extensive knowledge of photography, from the days of manual exposure through auto exposure and auto focus, and into the generation of Digital Photography and its exciting growth.
During his years in the industry, Don, assisted his many customers in their camera selections who later became students in the variety of classes and workshops including both basic and advanced photography, darkroom, and macro/closeup that he taught. Don continued upon retirement, teaching at his own store “Dons’ Camera”.
Some of Don’s photography interests are nature, landscapes, events, sports and automotive photography. Don had been a photographer/reporter covering major auto racing events, both Formula 1 and Sports Car races for the “Berkshire Eagle”.
A current photo interest is the world of close-up/macro photography and Don has shared his knowledge with Macro Workshops of his own and with the Photographers’ Connection.
