I live here in the sun drenched southwest - Phoenix, Arizona to be exact! I am an Arizona native, born in Show Low and raised in Tucson and Mesa, and I love this state and all it has to offer photographically. My affinity for Arizona is reflected throughout my photography and the Arizona landscape has played a huge part in molding me into the photographer I have become today.
I have been taking photographs since I picked up my Dad’s old Spotmatic, at the age of 12, and started wasting his film. I bet my dad wishes there was digital photography back then, could have spared him the expense of film and film developing!
I have traveled this state searching for those places that are seldom seen and some places that are often overlooked. My photographs range from early black and whites created in the 1980’s with 4X5 film, to the present- day digital images. Many of the photographs you see here are scans of my negatives and transparencies from over the years. The gallery offers a combination of 4X5 film images as well as digital images, both of which I am still shooting with today.
I currently reside in Phoenix, Arizona with my wonderful wife and daughter.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing the images.
