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 central focus of my work is on artistic nude and figure compositions, emotive portraiture, and conceptual nudes,
but the scope of my work also includes creative portraiture, nature and landscape, and still life.
Photography is widely acknowledged as a documentary medium, and some even claim that its
documentary aspect is the essence of its nature, but there is no question for me that
the true magic of photography lays in its expressive potential. I don't pick up a camera
to record events and facts. I pick it up to expose feelings and explore "what ifs."
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.
Enjoy your visit, and feel free to e-mail me if you have questions.
