I am a lifelong resident of Adams County, I live in the beautiful foot hills of the orchard country near Orrtanna and roam about the area as a freelance photographer/photojournalist in and around the Adams County .

My clients are varied and have included the Evening Sun of Hanover and the Community Dispatch Newpapers in MD., the Lutheran Seminary, Historic Gettysburg Adams County, the Adams County Arts Council, the Land Conservancy of Adams County, Strawberry Hill Nature Center as well as a host of individual projects. The most recent was a local artist's project named 'The Work'n Folks' which is a collective of artists working in various media in a donated space in Historic Gettysburg, the space has since been sold but the group's members are still working in their various media and hope to come together with a creative way to display their art in the near future!

I have had the pleasure of having two separate images of mine hung in the State Capitol Museum in Harrisburg Pennsylvania's during the exclusive Art of the State shows.
I have a Christmas card that is published worldwide.
I also have an image on a bluegrass CD cover.
I have placed second and won a bronze internationally for an image taken at Hanover Station named 'Peek'n Round the Corner'
I exhibit my images on the internet at my website {dickbloom.com} as well as on my blog at{ dickbloom.blogspot.com}!
I have images at the American Civil War Museum Steinwehr Avenue , Gettysburg and in their current 2007 catalog.
My degree work is Marketing and Advertising.
I've had a cameo as a historical patron of the Inn from the earliest days on the shoot of Home and Garden TV during their segment on the Historic Fairfield Inn' Fairfield PA
My vocation allows me to do the work I love and also allows me to pursue my artistic expression as well.
My goal is to bring images to the masses that speak to folks!
Sometimes it is an in your face image, sometimes heartfelt and quiet.

I love this quote from the renown J.G. Holland he states:

'Artists are nearest God, into their hands he breathes his life, and from their hands it comes in fair, articulate forms to bless the world!'

I am not sure I am closer to God, but I know the gift of knowing when to pull the trigger {shutter} is I feel a gift from certainly the photo God, as explained by my mentor and teacher Ron Talbot.
