about - nawset

Quick bio:<br />
<br />
I'm Pete Schrader and I am a Lucky Charm fan.<br />
<br />
I live in Keene, NH with my lovely wife Rita and our two cats, Hudson and Cooper.<br />
<br />
By day, I am happily the Director of Financial Systems and Operations for a super-regional insurance company.  By night, I am a devoted husband (my words), a self-proclaimed techie, a runner, and a newbie photographer.<br />
<br />
I created this site because I wanted (1) to play with HTML, CSS, and the like, (2) to provide my family and friends, many of whom are technophobes, an easy way to see my pictures, and (3) to get feedback on my pix (negative preferable) as a way to develop my eye and technical skills as a photographer.<br />
<br />
Aside: What is Nawset you might ask.  Nauset Beach (please note the "u") on Cape Cod is my favorite spot on earth.  Many years ago, I tried to get "nauset" as a license plate.  Unfortunately, a little old lady in Hooksett, NH already had it so I went phonetic with "nawset".  Twenty years later I can't give it up.  So much so that I haven't even checked to see if she died.<br />
<br />
Update (2012): She died.  Sadness.  Rita now has the plate on her car.<br />
<br />
Anywho, I would love your feedback on any shot that moves you, good or bad.  Puff my ego by saying you like a shot or provide me some constructive feedback on how I could have made an image better.<br />
<br />
And if you don't want to embarrass me in public, drop me a line at pete@nawset.com<br />

Thanks for visiting.

Quick bio:

I'm Pete Schrader and I am a big Lucky Charm fan (they're magically delicious you know).

I live in Keene, NH with my lovely wife Rita and our two cats, Hudson and Cooper.

By day, I am happily the Director of Financial Systems and Operations for a super-regional insurance company. By night, I am a devoted husband (my words), a tech geek, a beer connoisseur, a runner, and a newbie photographer.

I created this site because (1) I wanted to play with HTML, CSS, and the like, (2) I wanted to provide my family and friends, many of whom are technophobes, an easy way to see my pictures, and (3) to get feedback on my pix (positive or negative - negative preferable) as a way to develop my eye and technical skills as a photographer.

Aside: What is Nawset you might ask. Nauset Beach (please note the "u") is my favorite spot on earth. It is located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Many years ago, I tried to get "nauset" as a license plate. Unfortunately, a little old lady in Hooksett, NH already had it so I went phonetic with "nawset". Twenty+ years later I can't give it up.

Update: she did finally pass into the Great Beyond, and we now have both license plates.

Anywho, I would love your feedback on any shot that moves you, good or bad. Puff my ego by saying you like a shot or provide me some constructive feedback on how I could have made a shot better.

And if you don't want to embarrass me in public, drop me a line using the 'contact me' link above.
