George Schwarz, photographer
George, a New Orleans native, spent 25 years in the health care industry. He became serious about photography during graduate school at the University of Iowa. In fact, in 1968 and 1969, he spent so much time photographing and developing pictures that he almost washed his master’s thesis down the darkroom drain.
During 25 years in health care, he was a hobbyist photographer. But in 1996, George became a reporter, often shooting for his stories. His interests include travel, aviation, railroads and nature — all of which are reflected in his photographs.
He retired in 2016 and in 2017 moved to Victoria where he lives with his wife, Beth, and his loyal canine companion, Scout.
