My dad was a photographer in the 40's. I still have his Speed Graphic and Kodak 2-D. I shoot because it is my personal self expression. The interaction with my subjects is so fulfilling and rewarding. I have met all kinds of people in many stages of life, from the rich, powerful, weak and depressed to strong and self aware. I have learned a lot from my subjects and been humbled often. It is my goal to shoot as often as possible and capture people, places and things in a way where their true identity is expressed in my work. Thank you for taking a moment to understand this part of my life's work.
