About Bob Gathany Photographer

Welcome! I am a retired staff photographer for The Huntsville Times newspaper in Huntsville, Alabama. I shoot with a Sony A9 digital camera and in my spare time, I like to photograph lightning and fly really big kites (not at the same time). I worked for the newspaper from 2000 until retiring in Sept. 2018 and for 20 years before that had a studio and custom color lab that specialized in commercial/industrial photography (products, architecture, plant facilities, museums, decor, etc.).  My grandmother and her brother were photographers in the early 1900's in PA. My cousin Jim Gathany is a photographer with the CDC in Atlanta who specializes in photographing mosquitos so I guess we come by it naturally.  Though retired, I still take assignments in my spare time.  Please feel free to contact me.
