PHOTOGRAPHY - The never ending search for excellence.
Being behind the lens is an early memory. As a child I was handed a camera to take a family photo and photography has intrigued me ever since. Ansel Adams' work helped me understand the many shades of gray between black & white, and the impact of contrast. B&W continues as my biggest challenge. The attention to detail required by photography transferred directly to my business ventures where blurred results were as unacceptable as blurred photos.
In 1968 I bought a used Nikon and began trying to learn the art of photography. Photography is an ongoing learning process that never ends and I continue to learn. I employ natural light whenever possible. I do not use Photoshop or employ techniques different from those I learned in the dark room before digital photograph existed.
I love photography and the endless challenges of creating unique images for the world to enjoy. In 2019 I began teaching photography.
I believe I am proficient at most photographic disciplines; landscape, sports/action, architectural and documentary. I am gaining proficiency in portraiture, a new discipline requiring a higher level of detail than the other disciplines of this wonderful artistic science.
I will consider challenging assignments, domestic and international. Contact me using the Contact Form on this site.

Architecture is the 3-dimensional embodiment of the creativity of an artist/engineer. The beauty of architectural designs often goes unnoticed as we drive past these wonderful creations, or enter them for various reasons. Architects give us on a grand scale what most other artists provide in a small and more manageable package.
