C. D. Price, 'drg', is a third generation photographer whose work includes industrial, commercial, and archival photography. Architecture is his first choice of subject material. Recently he has been exploring new technology and subjects along with variations of older photographic techniques translated to the digital age.
Starting with an introduction by his grandfather, he has pursued various aspects of photography. From his first paying gig at age 14 photographing an Anniversary Party to high speed analytical photography for motion studies of production equipment, he has explored a lot of territory. There was an early fascination with sports photography of motocross, bicycle, and auto racing. He then moved away from the purely sports aspect and towards the event and human-interest side.
Photography was partially left behind for employment in areas more related to academic training in mathematics and computer science. The ensuing decade brought work with the high-speed photography for process analysis. He was employed as a microfilm and documentation support specialist/consultant in the banking field. During the industry transition to 'imaging', he provided various levels of consultation to various organizations, elements of which were photography based.
There was an excursion into software development on early PC's. This included development of Operating System tools and compilers for object manipulation software for the Macintosh and Lisa. He lived with IBM PC-AT's serial numbers 33 and 34 for the better part of a year as a member of a team developing an automated television station control system. His involvement as a researcher and developer ended with development of tools including graphic libraries for supercomputing environments.
An incremental return to full time photography came via the graphic design and desktop publishing route. He had authored a very early DTP system with implementation for the first Lanier and Wang stand-alone word processing systems.
He came to photographreview.com while looking for equipment reviews. Revisiting the site later, he chose to join a discussion thread. One thing led to another and exploration of equipment available led to writing a review for PR. Currently has been exploring alternative lighting including lasers and looking in depth at the software available in the digital photography field.
Today C.D. Price maintains "The Paul R. Flowers Civil Rights and Religion Photography Archive", is one of the founders of the Mountain Seminars for Management, and is the principle in "Photos by CDPrice". This professional outlet is a custom shop that produces photographic and commercial work for private clientele ranging from the archival and industrial, to one of a kind imagery.
And yes, by special arrangement, Carleton will shoot the occasional wedding, though you may get an architectural study of the church or facility thrown in at no extra charge.
