Bernard Spinelli is passionate about photography, but not necessarily his own.
When someone asked him a while back why he was passionate about his photography “I replied that I wasn’t,” Bernie said in an email interview. “I did say that I was passionate about other people’s photography.”
Bernie has been photographing since 1963 while working as a field service technician at California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. “I’ve been exposed to a lot of visual input in my lifetime, which is storytelling in its truest sense and allowing one to be there and experience the moment as it happened.”
Admittedly it's trite to say a photograph is worth a thousand words, but as Bernie says, try describing a fireworks display.
