My interests cross many of the technologies and styles that span the history of photography. While I explore the current trends in digital photography, I have also found great enjoyment in experimenting with older methods of traditional or analog photography. Whether sitting at a computer working on post-production work in various software applications or toiling in a darkroom to get just the right contrast, I find the various challenges quite rewarding.
Even though I have worked with some color film, the majority of my color photographs have been captured with a digital single lens reflex camera. I enjoy macro photography to capture abstract scenes that make the viewer look at something in a different way. I also photograph nature scenes and do portrait and studio work from time to time.
Experimenting with black and white film gives me great satisfaction and I have taken photographs on 35mm film, 120mm medium format film and even 4”x5” large format film using railed view cameras – the camera where you have to throw a dark sheet over your head in order to focus. Processing my own film and darkroom work have proven to me that photography, in its many forms, will continue to be both a challenging and very rewarding endeavor for everyone who looks through a view-finder.
I hope you enjoy my work and the only thing I like more than taking photographs is talking about photography. So if you have time, stop and ask some questions!
