Dennis was born and raised in Southern California. He currently resides north of Atlanta, GA with Beth, his wife of over 40 years. He and his wife are Christians and are active members of their local church. In addition to photographic arts, Dennis enjoys traveling, bird watching, hiking, reading, and spending time with his extended family.
His interest in photography dates to his teenage years when he purchased his first 35mm camera. Dennis moved into digital photography in 2003, as the digital camera age was just hitting its stride. After shooting with Canon DSLR cameras for a number of years, Dennis now has become a dedicated mirrorless camera user, shooting with Olympus.
Dennis has had two professional careers. After graduating from college in 1977, Dennis and his sister Kathy started a real estate brokerage and management firm, Chambers Property Services, in Orange County California. After riding the condo boom of the 1980s, Dennis decided to change careers and spent the next seven years as a student, earning his MBA at UC Irvine and his PhD in Accounting at the University of Texas at Austin. He then served as an accounting professor on the faculties of University of Illinois, University of Kentucky, and finished his professional academic career at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, retiring in the summer of 2021. Although retired, Dennis still holds an academic position with Kennesaw State as a Professor Emeritus. In retirement, he now enjoys a bit more free time for photography and other interests.
Dennis’ photography covers a wide range of genre including street, landscape, and wildlife photography as well as artistic composite imagery. He is a member of the Booth Photography Guild, at the Booth Museum in Cartersville, GA. Over the past ten years, Dennis has been honored to have his photographs and composite images regularly juried into the annual BPG Fall Exhibit in the Booth Museum.
