Meet Colin Seitz
From the early days of an apartment bedroom with a darkroom in it, Colin moved to digital photography which he used for several years to satisfy his desire to capture his emotional response to the landscape, but the change was not permanent. As more and more of the photography world began to use digital, Colin felt something was missing, and made the switch back to film and the darkroom, noting “it isn’t about which one is better, rather, the creation of a photograph with film satisfies me; it is therapeutic, and involves a level of thought and patience I didn’t experience creating photographs digitally.” Colin continues to search out all there is to learn with photography, and supplements his learning by experimenting in the darkroom and the field.
Colin and his wife Cortney live at the Jersey Shore along with Tiger, their rescued cat. Colin spent 4 years in the United States Marine Corps prior to earning a BA in Economics with minor in Mathematics from Rutgers University. During his time at Rutgers, Colin was influenced by Dr Peter Rona, his professor for Oceanography, who introduced concepts about global and ocean warming, as well as conservation. It was an elective class and while it did not change the course of study Colin chose, much of what he learned continues to guide him now with his beliefs and approach to sustainable living along with protecting the land we have, to include his approach of leaving things better than we found them.
