Karl Graf was born in Selah, Washington, a small farming community in the eastern part of the state.  “I spent my early years following my grandfather’s and uncle’s foot steps as they worked our orchard.  I also spent time with my other grandfather on his small cattle ranch. Both grandfathers were carpenters by trade. I grew up working with tools and building things.  My teen years were spent working in my father’s homebuilding construction company.  It was no surprise that I picked engineering as a career at the University of Washington.  Over the years, I have had the wonderful opportunity of working with many “engineering artists” in the nuclear, heavy construction equipment, aerospace, and medical equipment fields.”

“I first became interested in photography in the early 70’s as a means to capture events.  It was enjoyable, but it did not create a “fire” inside me.  By the late 70’s, my interest in photography had subsided.  Then came digital.  The technology intrigued me and offered the opportunity to experiment and learn in real time.  Since starting back up in 2004, I have continued a path along a ‘Never Ending Journey’ of learning.”
