Welcome to my web site. I began photography at a very early age with my father. He was a chemist who loved the processes in the wet darkroom, and I remember standing on a wooden box, watching the image emerge in the developer tray under the dim safe-light. I continued photographing, built my own darkroom, and worked with Zone System techniques for many years. However, life intervened and I found little time to photograph other the occasional family snapshot.
Digital technology has brought me back to photography, back to making images. I will always value my experience with film and the darkroom processes, but I could not go back. I put in enough time to realize that I need to put in even more time to really learn the craft of producing a photographic print. The digital darkroom has relieved me of this burden and has given me the ability to explore images in this new medium. It has been a learning process as well, but one that was informed by my earlier work with film. The digital cameras that I use now have technically surpassed the best cameras I used in the past.
The work in my galleries represents a cross section of my interests in creating visual images. Landscapes dominate the work, but I am also drawn to portraiture and hope to pursue it more in the future.
