Welcome, and thank you for visiting.

I'm an advanced student of image making who hopes to never stop learning, and a long-time photographer who enjoys sharing my work and my experience with others. The primary focus of my work is on artistic nude and figure compositions, conceptual nudes, and emotive portraiture, but the scope of my work also includes creative portraiture and some nature and landscape work.
My work is about the image, not the process. I use both film and digital cameras. I process images with a computer and in a wet darkroom. I print with high-end inkjet printers, with traditional silver gelatin paper, and with alternative processes. And I mix them all up. If the path to the image I want to produce starts photoelectrically and ends photochemically, or vice versa, that's OK with me. My conception of my art doesn't manifest in specific media, methods, or traditions, but in producing the image I envision using what ever tools it takes to get there. While I don't consciously pursue minimalism in my imagery, more than one person has commented on minimalist tendencies in my compositions. Also, while I shoot both color and B&W, I definitely have a bias toward monochromatic images.
While photography is widely acknowledged as a documentary medium, and some even claim that its documentary aspect is the essence of its nature, there is no question for me that the true magic of photography lays in its expressive potential. Expressive photography is not about recording events, facts, and reality. It is about exposing feelings and exploring possibilities. It is about using imagery to say things that you hope will start conversations about humans rather than events.
Enjoy your visit, and feel free to e-mail me if you have questions.
