BACKGROUND

I am passionate about making fine art photography.

I began over 30 years ago, and like many photographers, used film and a darkroom to create my images. While I have been using digital cameras and techniques for over fifteen years, I believe it is the composed image and not the technology that is most important. I am inspired and find motivation in the work of other photographers such as Steve McCurry, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and others.

I create images in both color and black and white. I am interested in photographing locations and cultures in the U.S., Europe, Asia, South America and wherever my travels take me. And I try to view everyday scenes in different ways and use different techniques to express my vision.

My work is shown in fine art galleries and is regularly on display in group shows and juried exhibitions, including those listed below. I also write for magazines (including Photo Technique and The Handmade Photograph), conduct workshops and personalized training, and create eBooks and Folios.
