Di Simpson relocated from New Jersey to New Hampshire in the summer of 1989. She found work almost immediately in the Alumni and Development office at Brewster Academy doing all their publications, which included mastering the computer and taking pictures at the school’s functions. She borrowed her Dad’s 20-year old Konica camera (with no bells or whistles) and began her journey into the world of photography. Simpson took numerous photography courses at UNH Continuing Education. The two courses that she enjoyed the most were night and macro photography.
Conquering the Konica, she received a new camera with everything automatic and lots of lenses. In 1997 Simpson started work at the then College for Lifelong Learning in Concord, NH, and commuted from Wolfeboro to Concord for over five years. She kept the camera in her car and discovered many great photo ops — including animals, flowers, and scenery — along the routes she traveled.
Thousands of pictures later — and now armed with a digital camera with all the bells and whistles — she is still finding lots of good shots. Her work is a bit more personal these days: taking pictures of her not quite 7-year old granddaughter and brand-new grandson.
