About Bob Gathany Photographer

Welcome! I am a staff photographer for The Huntsville Times newspaper in Huntsville, Alabama. I shoot with a Nikon D3 digital camera and in my spare time, I like to photograph lightning and fly really big kites (not at the same time). I have been at the newspaper since 2000 and for 20 years before that had a studio and custom color lab that specialized in commercial/industrial photography (products,architecture, plant facilities, museums, decore, 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.  While I work full time for the paper, I still take assignments in my spare time.  Please feel free to contact me.
