My photography began in the printing industry. Large format cameras, tray developing 2 x 3 foot negatives and processing images onto large metal plates. Quickly growing interested in art photography, I experimented with a variety of formats and camera types, including a vintage 1917 Kodak 8 x 10 inch view camera which I restored. With the advancement of digital media surpassing film, production costs and environmental conscience no longer factors, opportunities to create flourished.
Nature and landscape are favorite subjects. Recording images of inspiring places, extends the memory of those moments. Macro photography of flowers is especially therapeutic. Concentration on details when focusing and composing puts me in the zone, yielding beneficial results similar to meditation. Children are a growing favorite. Innocent of the cameras presence, they go about their behavior providing many opportunities with special moments, which have their unique rewards.
