Making images has been a part of my life for over 40 years. My father was a professional shooter who's career started in the military during WWII and spanned over half a century. He exposed me to the disciplines of commercial, aerial, wedding, portraiture, and journalism; including long hours in the darkroom where his vision was realized.
This medium offers me opportunities for personal artistic expression. Whether methodically crafting a fine art image or working quickly to capture the wonder of flight, the array of visual stimulus keeps me energized about my craft. I have an affinity for monochrome images and see contrasts and tonalities before colors. Ansel Adams, Morley Baer, John Sexton, and Joel Tjintjelaar have influenced my vision.
I particularly enjoy the tonalities found in the margins of light as each day begins and ends. In these ever changing moments, I find a level of sensory stimulation and satisfaction that usually results in my best work.
