|My 35 year background as a corporate pilot has afforded me the time to pursue other business interests. In 1977, my brother Tom and I started Berg Brothers Logging, cutting saw timber and veneer logs throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. In 1987, I started a new business, Bergs Craftsmanship In Wood, handcrafting custom furniture and built-in cabinetry throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
A 2005 trip to Yellowstone National Park changed me in a profound way. While there, I was bitten with the photography bug. Since then I have upgraded my Nikon camera equipment and have honed my printing skills via workshops with Nature Photographer John Shaw, master printer Andrew Darlow, and the Epson Print Academy. We have recently renovated our cabinetry showroom into a combination furniture showroom and Canvas Gallery.
